A glimpse of Tehran


Getting to a hotel in Tehran was quite a task. Tehran is a big city of 8 million inhabitants and their driving is quite… “energetic”. Traffic jams are dreadful: cars are stopped for long period of times on the main roads. Before heading further South in my desperate search for warmth, I took the metro to see the mountains in the northern part of town, at the Tabiat bridge.
The Bridge is the largest pedestrian overpass built in Tehran, Iran. The 270-metre (890 ft) bridge connects two public parks—Taleghani Park and Abo-Atash Park—by spanning Modarres Expressway, one of the main highways in northern Tehran. The word tabiat means "nature" in the Persian language.
