"How are you going to manage two weeks without a drink?" That was one of the most common questions (just after "isn't it dangerous, going to Iran?").
I consoled myself with the notion that a booze-free stretch would do the body good. And they have good tea in Iran, so it's going to be easy. Easier than I expected.
Little did I think that on my first day in the Islamic Republic of Iran I would drink wine and apple schnapps... and eat pork!
