Iran, Land of Diversity

The ethnic diversity of Iran is both amazing and unique in many respects. Iranians  come from Persian, Turk, Lor, Kurd, Arab, Baluch, Sistani, Turkemen backgrounds. This ethnic diversity and intercultural interaction has made the Iranian society one of the most dynamic and attractive in terms of national heritage and culture. Local dialects and accents and even ethnic languages are very popular. Local cuisine and traditional dishes are welcomed in every home. Traditional and ethnic art including drama, music, painting and folklore have all evolved to create a very rich cultural backbone. Traditional costumes and colorful clothes are also one of the attractions  specific for each Iranian ethnic group.

Let me guess, they're all dressed up to watch a few floggings and a public beheading, right?

Yeah, I know, you won't publish this, but I had to say it anyway. :p
