I was really impressed by how much Iranian culture, history, and humour could be infused into what amounted to be a simple, every-day gathering of Iranian woman having bordacos and a “gap-shap” gossip … The women talk about first loves, sex, arranged marriages, forced marriages and husbands in general.
