"foriegn tourism"??? - Does that exist in Iran? Are their really people out there saying, screw my trip to Hawaii, I am going to go hit the links in IRAN?
Actually, I'm hoping to travel to Iran sometime in 2007 and golf will surely be part of my trip. Iran's a fascinating country with a very hospitable population. The government is actively courting tourists, particularly American tourists to the extent that they are even subsidizing some travel. I'd definitely choose Iran over Hawaii, but that's just me.
