Did you know that IRAN is the world's largest producer and exporter of CARPETS, producing 3/4ths of the world's total output?!

And frankly, you cannot visit Iran without being completely immersed in the carpet scene. They are decorating almost every floor in all mosques, palaces, museums, hotels, restaurants, households and any other notable buldings. The come in all kinds of textures, designs, colors and styles -- and they add such a unique flavor to Iranian culture. I am really enjoying it!

Today, I had the pleasure of visiting one of the most well known carpet shops in Isfahan, Iran -- and little did I know how EXPENSIVE they can be! Well, not all of them (some are $70USD...) but I found one today that is worth $100,000 USD!! Can you believe that? One carpet for the price of a nice house in Iran!

Join me as I take you deeper inside the world of Persian rugs, and stay tuned for more to come from this amazing G Adventures trip of a lifetime :)
