The Rick Steves Program will provide an introduction to an American audience about Iran (Persia) and its current people. Rick led a film crew to that country in the month of June 2008 for 10 days. He believes travel is a necessary tool to break down cultural barriers and potentially reduce violent conflict in our world -- more than ever. UNA Seattle and National office of UNA-USA were instrumental in Rick securing the required visa in order to initiate and complete his trip to Iran. A Rick Steves PBS special on Iran is slated to premiere nationally in January 2009. Presented by the United Nations Association of Seattle.
Rick is giving a slideshow and lecture about this recent trip to Iran next Tuesday, October 14th, in Seattle from 7:30 to 9:30pm. Tickets are available here.
