I do not think most have issues with the people of Iran, but issues with their leader.
I remember before I went to Russia in '93, everyone told me Russia was so ugly and it was like being in a black and white world - no color - dark -
depressing. When I got to Russia, some parts of Russa at that
time did in fact seem very dark or black and white. Communisim had just fallen,
but life was starting to sprout in Russia.
Once you left Moscow and saw other parts of Russia it was amazing the beautiful scenery....the colors and the people. I went to one city, Nizhny
), and it was amazing, perfect place for a resort right on the Volga River. Nobody mentioned
those parts of Russia existed! Probably because most people never saw it. We only saw what was on the news.
I am deeply saddend that back then, there was no digital camera for me to take
I know this is not about Russia, but I just wanted to show, how it is common for Americans to see a country much different than it really is.
In my opinion, I think everyone in America should leave America and go travel abroad!! There really is life outside of America and you can not rely
on the media to show you what others live like elsewhere!!
