If anybody looks through some photos of this travel it will be automatically obvious to her that I love scarves. The one item that will never be missing from my backpack is a piece of fabric to be wrapped, hanged, folded, spread and shifted around in a million shapes.

Maybe because of that, and because when it comes to clothing I am usually happy with long and loose stuff, I had not thought it would be great deal the fact that in Iran I would need to wear hijab. In fact, it wasn’t a great deal most of the time.
