Ahvaz to Abadan, Iran
We had waited for 12 hours in Mehrabad airport in Tehran; Ahvaz, our destination, was cut off by a dust storm. We were given breakfast, lunch and dinner but little in the way of information or alternatives. Nobody made a fuss. I made a mental note; Iranians are very patient. I struck up a conversation with an Iranian doctor waiting for the same flight, I told her that if such a delay had happened in the US with so little information being given out, there would have been a screaming mob. She told me Iranians had had to develop patience..... She herself had lost hers and was shortly emigrating to Australia.
