Nomads: Iran Edition- Kurdistan

After years of traveling to Iran, I yearned to see what life was like for those living outside the big-city bubbles most of us as diaspora are used to returning to. One of my most memorable trips of this sort was to the Kurdistan region, border of Iran-Iraq, home to Kurdish nomads. Traveling to this war-torn region where its people have faced every problem, from border tensions, to land mines, government negligence, bombardments, ect. really allowed me to see Iran from a different perspective…
