After a long period of living abroad and keeping busy with all sorts of jobs and adventurous, I’m back home. Well, it is no secret that for anyone, no matter where you are from, going back “home” comes with a long list of pros and cons.
For the time-being, I’m just trying to stay positive about this move. The moment I decided to return home, I knew there would be a lot of changes ahead of me. On top, some restrictions for “my way of life”. Living here calls for different clothing, coping with local value system, and changes in lifestyle in general. No more hanging out at pubs late at night, limited access to my favourite open-air sports, and so on and so forth.
But then again, life here is “easier” in many respects; I won’t have to work 24/7 just to meet ends, as the country is still way more affordable compared to many other places. I’m near my parents, family and friends. And my personal favourite; I get to enjoy being right at the heart of major events which are -very quickly- transforming the whole nation and shaping the future of my homeland, right at this very moment.
It has been more than a year now that I’m back where I started. So here it goes… A blog on my personal take on Iran, how it is and how it changed and will change, after a decade of being away from her. 🙂
