Una leccion de moda irani//A lesson on Iranian fashion


Chador: Manto que cubre todo el cuerpo, obligatorio en todos lo sitios sagrados (mezquitas, etc). Generalmente negro, excepto el que dan a los guiris en recepcion, que tiene tonos de sabana de la tia Juani, dicese para que el guiri de la nota todavia mas.

Hijab: (ref. la foto de abajo). Bufanda en la cabeza y camisa 10 tallas mas grande de lo normal (necesario que cubra el trasero). Obligatorio siempre que se este delante de hombres (excepto hermanos o padre). Nota: no se debe olvidar cuando se abre puerta del hotel a quien llame, cuando se va al bano o cuando recien levantado se abre la cortina del hotel para ver si hace sol.





Chador: The Chador covers the entire body and is compulsory in all sacred sites (mosques etc.) It is generally black, although all tourist reception offices hold floral table cloths for those that have left theirs at home. Perhaps it is so tourists are easily identified?

Hijab (refer to the bottom photo): The dress code that require all women to hide all of the curves. It is generally comprised of a scarf that covers the head and long baggy shirts. It is compulsory to wear the Hijab in front of men, except amongst blood family. Eider complains continuously about having to wear it because it takes her five minutes longer to get to the toilet in the morning.

Pero si parece un fantasma deambulando por una mezquita! Seguro que no es un "cortar pegar" hecho con Powerpoint!
Yo creo que a Eider le dan la nacionalidad Iraní si llega a seguir saliendo en las fotos vestida de negro. No me extraña que pasara desapercibida. Si parece persa de toda la vidaR.

Hey guys! The table cloth looks good on you, Eider - kind of. But I think it would look stunning on a table!

Would it seem better if Andrew had to take an extra 5 minutes to go to the toilet as well? We could arrange a chastity belt, or something.
