I invite all of you to come to my cave, it will provide you a pleasing linguistic ambience where you will not only learn the language of humans but the language of nature as well,-- you know... the twitting of birds, fluttering of leaves in a gentle breeze, the stream of water burbled through the woods and sounds of different wild animals. :D
If italki is going to defenestrate us all, you may consider knocking at my cave:D
Hope you all find a better place to learn your languages!
Here is a short poem for you:
Sesame, sesame open the door
We are all waiting behind the door
Just let us come inside
On the cave floor, we shall reside
We shall reminisce the good old days
When italki was free of language partner requests
We will drink tea with milk and sugar
Perhaps later we will eat one or two burgers
In the cave, we will have so much fun
Just like the good old days that are gone!
That's a good idea. I will occupy the southwest of the cave. ;)
There also comes the issue of wearing the hijab in Iran. Women who don't wear the hijab are declined entry to the country. I have heard some women saying that they're interested in visiting Iran, but due to the mandatory hijab, they refrain from traveling to it. So, I guess some people can't just come to terms with this aspect of life in Iran. You should come and see what hijab really means here for yourself, Most women are stylish and wear free hijab. By free hijab, I mean loose scarves and open manteaues.
If you are OK with not drinking alcohol, using credit cards, and lying naked on the beaches, then you are always welcome to Iran. Iranians are generally warm and welcoming people. :) I mentioned this because I once heard an American guy say that he will never travel to Iran because he cannot drink! Well, I guess the advantages of traveling to Iran is more than some of its seeming disadvantages. If one is genuinely interested in Iran's culture and would like to know more about it, these issues shouldn't be an obstacle.
