I'm intrigued by the way in which the Tibetans cope with adversity.

The stories about Iran were also interesting. To be honest, I would never go there myself because I do not agree with the political regime there nor with the enforced dress code for women, but it's interesting to read about the lives of ordinary Iranians.
Yes, the Tibetans are amazing. And I can certainly understand your reasons for not wanting to visit Iran, however, I must admit, both benefited greatly from their visit - in a whole new world. They will never forget the kindness and generosity of the people they met.
