Melting snow from the mountains flows down into the city and runs along many north-south streets in channels called joobs. It is an unusual sight, and the the sound and sight of this flowing stream as we walked yesterday was a pleasant cooling atmosphere. The days are hot, and that is one of the reasons people go to the mountains in the evenings.
Remembering the exciting sight of Tehran from the plane as we approached.
