Nice pictures up there Payam. The city of Tehran must be that of rich people, real good exotics on road i say. but, what do the people do for their living? Do they work in oil companies or the educated ones migrate to other countries for work?

Of course all of Iranian dont work in oil companies,it's like you say all the Germans work in beer company or all the Brasilian are football player.how can 70 million people work in oil companies only?
And not only educated people leave the country ,whoever cant stand the situation and can afford living there would do that.
Unfortunatley now a days west is showing iran in some horrible way,I met a european guy asked me with a strange face that you drive car in Iran??

Well said. I have heard of people asking my folks how they spoke such good english, whether they rode to school on elephants, and whether tigers roamed the streets. It all about how you choose to percieve it.

^^ I've been asked those & more including one instance where a friend's mother thought she was not going to return from India because she would die of Malaria if not bitten by a snake. And the "How can you speak such good English" is a very common comment/question.
