Google currency converter and the Iranian Rial

If you plug in 1 USD and convert it into the Iranian Rial using this application from Google you will get something like 42000 Rials.
This exchange rate is not what you would get in Iran.
You would get over twice as much these days something like 120000 Rials or 12000 Tomans.
Why? Because this is the official exchange rate i.e exchange rate for the Government organizations and related businesses to import and export and there is the parallel exchange rate.
The parallel exchange rate is still legal. It is for ordinary Iranians and tourists alike to buy and sell non Iranian currency.
Where do you exchange to get this rate? In most banks, bureau de change, hotels etc.

Los 5 volcanes de Irán

Hay 5 cumbres volcánicas en Irán: Bazmán, Damavand, Sabalán, Sahand y Taftán. Todos estos volcanes tienen rutas de trekking y puedo organizar o guiar expediciones a todos ellos.

Tiene unos 3.490 metros de altura y se encuentra a 40 km al noroeste la ciudad de Bazmán (la ciudad grande más cercana es Iranshahr, al sur). La cumbre tiene un cráter de 500 metros de ancho y 150 metros de profundidad. Es el punto de montaña menos accesible de Irán. Recibe fuertes nevadas en invierno.

La mejor época para caminar a esta cumbre es en primavera. Para todas las caminatas desconocidas en Irán, visite mi sitio web .   2. Damavand es e

Archaeology, anthropology of Ganj Darre in the Zagros Mountains of Iran

If you are planning to visit Iran one of the areas you must see is the Zagros Mountains . While trekking remote valleys and settlements you will come across nomads from pre-historic era. This article in Nature will shine light on the authenticity of the area. All of the treks I guide and organize are in remote pristine areas of the Zagros well away from the touristy zones. You will need to be physically and mentally fit and prepared to trek for several days on difficult terrain carrying your heavy backpack. The reward is out of this world. https://www.nature.com/articles/srep31326

In God we trust! Flingers crossed ! In-Sha-- Allah !!
