More armchair travel.....or where in the world is Rick Steves?

I've just been reading Rick Steve's blog from this last May. He was on a trip for the U. S. chapter of the United Nations Association (but at his own expense!) to Iran. Though I haven't actually traveled much, I have always enjoyed knowing people from other countries, including Iran [I especially love their food!!!].

His trip there will be aired in January on PBS.

Another way to learn more about Iran ( through a young girl's coming of age story) is to watch "Persepolis", the animated French movie which was nominated for an Oscar.

Learning about other cultures, people, lifestyles,and food is something I enjoy too. We human beings are more alike than not.
Wish more people would open their hearts to others.
