  • It’s worth pointing out that Rick’s post is about much more than urinals. He writes about several aspects of Iranian culture and isn’t afraid to make a bit of fun of himself. Apparently even an experienced traveler like Rick is clueless about cultural taboos in some parts of the world.

    Thanks for pointing the way to Rick’s blog, Hamid. I’ve used his guidebooks in my overseas travel, but I didn’t know he’d started blogging.
