On the Road in Search of the Real Iran
At the height of tensions between the West and Iran in 2011, adventurer Lois Pryce finds a note left on her motorbike parked outside the Iranian Embassy, proclaiming “WE ARE NOT TERRORISTS!”. The writer, Habib, urges her to come and visit the city of Shiraz, home of poetry, gardens and wine. Who could resist? So begins a 3,000 mile solo journey exploring the real Iran and its generous people, attempting to uncover this incongruous country.
