I felt safe wherever I go. We could camp everywhere without getting disturbed from somebody. Many people warned us against thieves. But nobody touched our bikes and stuff (except my sunglasses). The traffic in the big city is crazy, you have to watch out all the time. On the highway it’s easy to cycle, the roads are good, the traffic is less and most of the time you have an safety lane. Many trucks are very old and wrap you in a cloud of emissions when they passing by.
It was sad for me to realized that the people are not really free. They are limited in different ways, for example: there is no nightlife for young people, it’s forbidden to have an relationship without marriage, the internet is filtered and slow down, traveling in foreign country is very difficult (the visa assignment is strict and expensive), short pants are not allowed, women have to wear the hijab all the time.
However Iran was very exciting for me, it becomes one of my favorite countries. I would like to visit it again some day.
