I'm not there, but I was born there, many many years ago... hoping to go there for an upcoming winter to snowboard at Dizin!

so then do you have iranian citizenship as well, if you were born there? Or did you have to give that up when you moved to the US?

Technically, I believe you give up other citizenships when you become an American, but Iran's stance is once a citizen, always a citizen - so yeah, I'm dual And I guess as long as one of your parents is from there, you get to have a passport, no matter where you're born.

My sister's lucky that way - she's got Iran by blood, UK by birth, and US by living here.

Technically, you can have dual citizenship recognized by the American govt. it is just harder to do.... (Currently I am trying to dream up a way to get dual citizenship... my grandfather was born in Canada). Don't know if its possible, but I am going to try!

I've been looking into getting Norwegian citizenship. But I don't look very (stereotypically) Norwegian, haha. I doubt it will happen but I can dream, can't I??

Don't you mean creaming your hejjab?

Actually, it's amazing what the girls can get away with wearing in Iran nowadays, providing there's a headscarf present. The only trouble is, single women aren't allowed into the country - you have to have the written consent of - or be accompanied by - your husband.

WTF is up with THAT!?

re: what girls are getting away with wearing

this is kind of related... i like to click on the girls faces on the top right of the screen and see their personals. albeit, it's the uae not iran - a tad more liberal i'd say... anyway, haha - it's an old link, but one i enjoyed good and well a while back.

Yeah - UAE is quite different. Although Iran now wants to open up a free-trade zone/resort town to rival Dubai.. Interesting to see how that'll come along.
