reddit user mossikan shares lovely photos of modern-day Iran, with thoughtful captions revealing a vibrant culture generally at odds with its current "mainstream" portrayals in Western media.
"It's hard for western media to get in there, and the govt. actually WANTS the country to look like a pit of chanting loons. What this adds up to the official Iranian news stations syndicating their footage to the west, who are happy to run it. Iranians are hands-down the loveliest people I've ever been around, and they are absolutely fucked right now." -- mossikan
