Kurdistan, a region divided in 4 regions belonging to Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey. They have their own language and culture. They represent approximately the 10% the Iranian population. Linguistically they may come to understand between different regions, Although with some dialectal differences.

More drivers who do their job seems to be in front of a cinema screen, watching the road, answering all messaging phone, eating pipes and making reckless manoeuvres at the wheel. The minibuses are fragile boxes of matches conducted by mindless, but this is not an exception in the region, is common throughout the country. In India for example, drivers slow down before the proximity of passers-by, not in Iran, you accelerate so that you turn you, with all the danger that this implies, We have suffered in our meat fearful Iranian driving.

The region that retains more fervently Kurdish culture is also the most mountainous. Although the distances are relatively small time to reach them is high, It takes patience and many hours of transport. Kurds people raised on the border with Iraq are very interesting and its generous people. Depending on the time of year it is possible to shorten the path from a village to another, so I recommend going early summer to save time.

It is still possible to see traditional life in these places, I say yet because in spite of the scarce foreign tourism, national tourism that it is massive.
