Curves of Iran

Once again, I took a 3 weeks trip in the Middle East, with my video bag, filled with a few extra shirts, with one thought in mind: make people want to travel. The narration explains the whole thing : "Curves are everywhere in Eastern culture: our writing, our architecture, our instruments, the way we dance ; even the tone of our language is curved. The West was built on angles. The East was built on curves."
