Every country has it’s unique culture. Maybe some things are closely aligned to your own, and some things you may consider to be quirky. Here are some quirky things we’ve encountered during our time in Iran.

每个国家都有独特的文化。也许有些事情与你自己的事情紧密相关,有些事情你可能会认为是古怪的。以下是我们在伊朗时期遇到的一些奇怪的事情。

Fruit Bowl: Would you like some fruit? Please take one… especially the green one! We’ve seen this many times in Iran households that it’s certainly a common thing to include cucumbers to the fruit bowl.

水果碗:你想要一些水果吗?请拿一个…绿色的!我们在伊朗家庭中已经多次看到,将黄瓜放入水果碗中肯定是常见的事情。

Cereal: Forget Special K or L, you must try Special M. No copyright law here mean you can find copycats like Mash Donald or Pizza Hat (for more see this BuzzFeed article)

谷物:忘记 Special K或L,你必须尝试 Special M.这里没有版权法意味着你可以找到像Mash Donald或Pizza Hat这样的模仿者(更多请参阅这篇BuzzFeed文章)

Pumpkin: They had a pumpkin festival in Rasht for October/November, however it’s not related to Halloween at all. There were some weird looking pumpkins that it could well have been a Halloween display!

南瓜:10月/ 11月他们在拉什特举办了一个南瓜节,但它与万圣节根本无关。有一些奇怪的南瓜,很可能是一个万圣节展示!

Best Before: The dates don’t seem right. That’s because in Iran the year is 1397. Also they print the recommended retail price on the product (35,000 Rial).

保质期:日期似乎不对。那是因为在伊朗,今年是1397年。他们还打印了该产品的建议零售价(35,000里亚尔)。

Indian Snack: Looks like pasta but very colourful! These are meant to be deep fried, then puff up into crispy chips, similar to East Asia’s fried prawn crackers.

印度小吃:看起来像意大利面,但非常丰富多彩!这些都是油炸的,然后膨化成脆片,类似于东亚的炸虾饼干。

Shampoo: Does your hair smell and you’re afraid of vampires? Why not try this 2-in-1 shampoo? Our Russian ex-flatmate would absolutely recommend anything garlic.

洗发水:你的头发有异味,你害怕吸血鬼吗?试试这款二合一洗发水吧。 我们的俄罗斯前同居绝对会推荐任何大蒜。


Honestly, we really like Iran. It’s just when we see these quirky things we have to photograph it to have a good laugh later on.

说实话,我们真的很喜欢伊朗。只是当我们看到这些古怪的东西时,我们必须拍照才能在以后好好开怀大笑。
