Discoveries in Iran

Breast and nose jobs are the rave in Iran! According to the News Straits Times, dozens of beauty centers, including spas and salons, have mushroomed across Teheran. An Art student, Ziba had nose and breast surgeries and she wanted to be tanned and look more attractive. Wearing the headscarf is obligatory under Syariah law which was imposed after the 1979 revolution but that doesn’t keep the Iranian women from taking care of their looks. I was rather surprised by the news because when I visited Iran, I had thought the people there, men and women alike are naturally good looking. One particular woman who removed her headscarf when we were in the plane to Qatar looked just like a doll! Throughout our visit there, from Teheran to Shiraj, Kerman, Yantz, Abyaneh and Esfahan, we saw good looking people. When we were in Teheran again during the last leg of our trip, we met youngsters who were very keen in learning English and a boy in a bus even told me he loved Harry Potter! Believe me, you can get Coca Cola in Iran but I have failed to find a round neck T-shirt there. Then, not every female wears the chador. Young females do wear scarves but they also wear jeans as well and they do appear well dressed and trendy too especially in their high heels. Old women in black chador exist but the chadors are really from thin, lacy materials which when swayed in the wind, look graceful.

Traveling Tip: Look for beauty in the place you are visiting; that is if you want to enjoy the trip!

Can we ever see ourselves as others see us, do they see the beauty in themselves as we see it. A lot of nip and tuck guys would have to change professions .

If people have not grown so rich and so vain, maybe there won't be any need for these tuck guys but then what the heck. All these make our world tick and it's their own bodies that they want to hack!

I have never been to Iran. However, I have been to UAE and met quite a number of MiddleEasterners. It was a trip sponsored by the Msian government and we had an interpreter who is very pretty.
Travelling is such an eyeopener to the world and different cultures.
