Football :)

OK, for the first time I feel Iranian football is showing some sort of a logical (vs. emotional) performance. Iran qualified to the world cup today. Unlike last time that all the good things came together in the last minute, the team did a smooth job from the start.

Among other developments in this football match was the intelligent move of the women who went to the staidum today and finally got their way in to the staidum. Apparently the taboo (of women presense in men's game) is breaking. Check out their photos.

The fairly open preelection atmosphere of the country allows some quality street celebrations. Check out the photos: 1, 2, 3, 4.
Isn't the young population amazing?!
