Seltener Mac – häufiger Mack!

---> Wo ist das?

December 13th, 2005 Latitude: 37.278424N Longitude: 49.597778E

2005-12-02_16-34-18_teheran_iran Bereits auf meinem ersten Spaziergang durch Teheran lächelt mich der angeknabberte Apfel von Weitem an: Der vemutlich einzigste Apple-Laden im Iran. Beim näheren Hingucken entpuppte sich die Veranstaltung als eher trauriges Ereignis: Ein längst verblasste Rechner schlummert hinter vergitterten Schaufenstern – es war Donnerstag und nach islamischem Kalender also Wochenende. Unter der Ladentheke ein iBook-Karton. Der Rest: Computerteile und -zubehör, alles eher PC’s zugeordnet. Nichts Neues, nirgendwo.

2005-12-02_16-35-27_teheran_iran Ähnlich das Bild auf Irans Strassen. Vor allem die Lastwagen sind deutlich “pre-revolution”. Das heißt, vor 1979. Alte Leyland, Mercedes, DAF, Volvo aus europäischer Produktion sowie Freightliner, White und immer wieder die massiven “Mack” aus den USA. Alle aus einer Zeit, als Persien mit seinem Schah als Land des Morgens verstanden wurde. 2005-12-08 13-49-19 rasht gilan iran

Heute stattdessen beherrscht Gestriges das Bild. Die alten Lastwagen, für die keine Ersatz besorgt oder bezahlt werden kann, sind dafür nur sinnbildlich. Die amerikanischen Handels-Sanktionen haben nicht nur die Straßen des Landes in ein Museum verwandelt. Höhepunkt: Ein Dodge Pick-Up, aus den 30er, 40er Jahren des vorigen Jahrhunderts.

Im Büro der stellvertretenden Direktoren der internationalen Abteilung der Nationalbank entdecke ich eine Tischflagge mit “Visa” und “Mastercard”-Symbolen drauf. Nirgendwo im Iran kann man mit Kreditkarte zahlen. “Das ist wohl eher ein historisches Souvenier” frage ich einen der Herren. “Mitnichten, wir sind immer noch Mitglieder!” Einzig der Code sei seit einigen Jahren gesperrt, fügt er mit einem Schulterzucken hinzu.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
