  1. I have been there three times for tour and business. Like Iran, if you really go there, you’d discover that the people are really different from the government and what US ( and every country) media make the country to look like. What I did feel, from a purely liberal American perspective, is why do such smart and nice people put up with the government. We’ll never understand it.
