Iran’s Censorship

Iran’s internet is censored.  Facebook and Twitter are illegal.  Western news stations are blocked.  Websites must be approved.  I am only just finding a way to reach you guys.  The snap shot below shows the pop up when denied access to the many sites we take for granted in the West.

If you do not hear from me for periods of time do not worry, my silence is only down to censorship issues.  I hope to gain an understanding of the reasoning behind this as my trip progresses.

I arrived safely into Tehran 7 days ago and very quickly was embraced by the Iranian people, all ensuring my well being.

If you have any questions about Iran, please drop me a comment and I will cover this topic for you in a future blog post.

I am really looking forward to exploring Iran with you.

As always, thank you for being a part of my journey.

  5. We do take many of our ‘freedoms’ for granted especially in the western world and never open our eyes to the restricted lives other people are living. Thank you for sharing these differences during your journey, so we may understand more.
    Safe travels.
