David and Brendan over at InDeepFilms are off in Iran taking a truly off-the-beaten-path trip where they’re making videos (12 so far), discovering the country’s culture, and giving the world a rare, somewhat uncensored look at this notoriously sheltered nation.
The above vid is from Esfahan, Iran’s third largest city (home to 3,430,353) and home to Naghsh-e Jahan Square, supposedly the second biggest square in the world next to Tienanmen. As you’ll see, given the quirkiness of travel in Iran, the boys often had to have an official guide with them, and when that guide had no clue what he was doing, he had to hire a guide too. It’s like an episode of “Three’s Company,” with less innuendo. The result: hilarity ensues.
