Iran

Iran is still my favorite country in terms of style and environment. This country is the ancient Persia of which has remained the legendary aura, the land of lustful kings and immense ambitions. Once the capital of the world, it has been enriched thanks to the commercial and cultural transit of which it has been center. Homeland of poets and mystics, of eternal sacred fires and incommensurable elegances. It is a country in which one must continually return.
