The Tehran weather has been more or less excellent despite the pollution and yes the unbearable and awful heavy traffic. But in the past couple of weeks it has been so hot that we have turned all the coolers on. We did have one of the best springs for a long time which included a lot of rainy and windy days which are always welcomed by many, however now it is warm if not hot most days. We were lucky to have had our cooler serviced on time and it makes being indoors more pleasant and may help to cool everyone down.
The talk of the town of course is the forthcoming presidential election, and the choice between four candidates (Mr Ahmadinejad, Mr Mousavi, Mr Karroubi and Mr Rezai). It is for sure an election to watch and follow especially with all the enthusiasm that Mr Mousavi has brought about among the students, technocrats, many women, and professionals. Some people are extremely eager and some others say that they will only vote in the second round.
