Iranian American takes group of Americans across Iran
Iranian American Nari Safavi is a regular contributor to Worldview. He came to the U.S. in 1976 at the age of 15 and for many years, traveled freely between Iran and the U.S. That came to a halt when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came to power. Nari says he felt that he was too outspoken and that it would be risky to travel back to his native Iran. But with a new leadership in power Nari says he felt like things have changed. He’s just returned from a two week trip, where he led a group of Americans from the Northwest corner of the country all the way to the Southwest corner. He joins us to talk about the trip and how the country has changed in the last eight years.
