Any "Cartel" connections?

The best photo essay among all your Colombia photo essays! The 3 videos are very cool, too!

Every photo is so Persian! The rug store is absolutely gorgeous! They must have shipped the Persian tiles piece by piece from Iran to build this authentic Persian Carpet store!

Thank you for posting all these nice photos! The photo essay made my day!


At last, one "positive impact" of Islamist regime!

Today, you can hardly travel to any corner of the globe and not see an "iranian community"! Before the revolution, I've been told, Iranians would go to US/Europe to study and would mostly go back home after finishing their studies. Today, 34 years after the ilsamic take over of our land, everyone seems to want to get the hell out of Iran. Not least regime supporters with money, and their fak o family!

Thanks for the nice pictures.
