An interesting peek at Iran

I stumbled today upon an interesting collection of images from Iran pulled together by a guy who's a student at teh New School in NYC... he was interested in showing some of what normal life (before the election and the ensuing protests) looks (or looked) like in the streets of a nation many Americans know so little about.

It is cool to see pictures of the real Iran. If you're interested in reading about what some the people of Iran are actually like, you should check out the book Children of Jihad by Jared Cohen. A large part of the book is a record of Cohen's talking to Iranian teens. It is definitely a different message than you get from American news.
