The Iranian Election


Obedience (resized for web)

Having visited Iran twice, in 1999 and 2011, I’m particularly interested in news from the country. Here’s the BBC story on the election being held today in Iran. Going to be very interesting to see what comes of it.

Cliimbing on Alam KuhI wrote about my 2011 experiences in Rope Diplomacy: On the Steeps in Iran, which spends a lot of time among Amazon’s top ten books about Iran.

(Available as an ebook from Amazon for $.99; includes more than 30 photos from NG photographer Stephen Alvarez.)
