This is partly inspired by listening to Everything But The Girl’s “Missing” somewhat on repeat in the car – I had few errands and the song didn’t quite finish on the short stretches between each, so it started over a few times. Not that I mind, I love the song. Not least because of its ambience…
Ambience – which is harder to say than to define – generally is something I value. Restaurants, for example – when I travel, I’d much rather have relatively good food and a brillian ambience in the place than something culinarily stellar but stiff or formal.
The images, I hope, show some ambience. They are from the Darband area in Tehran, Iran – described to us by one of our local colleagues as “in the foothill of the mountains”. Sure was hilly – and a very lively and colourful place. And – we even had good food!
