Re: How do you smoke salloum?
Iran is a neat country in that it's both very modern and yet not consumed with decadence. It's like Turkey in that respect. The people are also very open and the food is great. I haven't spent much time at all in the capital but I have gotten fairly familiar with the Northern third of the country and the East.
I am huge fan Iranian food, poetry and all forms of tobacco. If all goes according to plan I should have some Khansar brand jurak and moassel soon.
I like the cafes in that they are always nice to an obvious foreigner like myself and no ever was rude to me. Iranian and Arabic societies are very well mannered and hospitable. The best thing about the lounges (other then the tobacco) is the coffee is amazing and everyone is very talkative.
The big problem as I see it is that foreign visitors like myself can't get ale with the evening meal which is definitely not a good thing.
