Iran in Pictures

ESFAHAN, Iran - Looking out the window of the Abbasi hotel in central Esfahan, all appears normal. Iranians seem more concerned with the fate of the national football team (six players wear green wristbands to show their support for the opposition) than with their struggle for free and fair elections. If tonight is to bring more protests, there is no sign of it yet.

In a few days, we will leave Iran. As we near the end of our time here, it seemed appropriate to share a few pictures. It is too risky now to photograph the protests, but we have been able to shoot some sites as well as the people who live in this country in turmoil. Turn on sound to listen.
