The stunning approach to Tehran



“As we crested a hill, the motorway a moving piece of liquid metal, the city of Tehran came fully into view. I was stunned. It was spectacular. Set in a deep bowl, it was back set by huge, snow capped mountains. The edges of the city were clawing their way up these peaks, but like a wave stinging the cliffs, they failed to make any significant ground; merely fingers trying to claw their way up.
"They ski on those mountains," Faizullah pointed out. "Those ones at the back of the city." Easily one of the most dramatic entries to a city I had ever seen.”

Excerpt From: Jamie.B Ernstein. “The Last Jew of Kabul.”
