Traffic Jam & pink buses in Tehran

well, here the first thing you'll get confronted to once you'll be there : the craziness of the traffic - so crowded and its "rules".


Basically (and especially in Tehran) one can do whatever he wants to get where he wants, keeping in mind to respect his compatriots (that is to say not bumping them :-D).


See, they have pink buses. Anahita would dream to picture the same ones in Mexico ;-)

    of course they are REALLY pink ! i've brought back nine gigabytes of picture data, i like editing my pictures, but i'm not going to spend (waste) my time on the buses colours ! :-)).

    and you could start your Iran set with good and beautiful places in Isfahan :)) not the crowded and confusing Tehran :P

    Francois this picture is really great.just to see these buses I might overcome my fright of going to Iran and eventually go there one day.
    I wonder why I had never seen these pink buses in any picture of teheran on Flickr.maybe it's because you were a tourist.and could see these things that are so boring for someone who lives there.
    just as it happens to me and Mexico.
    would fave it again if I could.

    i was just lucky to have those pinkies rushing into my frame. i was actually looking for a real crowded & dirty pic that day. yep, sometime, i like it dirty :-P

    i noticed their color during my editing work :-D.

    Pink buses were around 10 years ago. This picture brought back a lot of memories. I can't belive these buses are still around.

    These buses are Hungarian made Ikarus, well known in all Eastern Europe and Russia. Very nice!
