Tehran Traffic Jam

Tehran (the capital city of Iran) is a very crowded city.

It's polpulation is more than 12 millions at work hours and 7 millions at night time.

I don't know the number of autos in Tehran streets, but from my friend's source, about 3 millions car are now driven in Tehran!

Here is "Vali-e Asr" street, shoot from top of "Parkway" bridge, at sunset time.

The background mountains are northern mountains of Tehran, where our home is placed on!

Check the map for more geographic info.
