1. I cross the street carelessly.
Any traveler who has been to Iran will tell you about the “craaaaazy traffic”. Iranians are insane drivers, and yet somehow, in all that insanity, they work it out. I used to wait and wait before crossing the street. Taxis would slow down and honk, thinking I was waiting for them. Why else would someone just be standing there? I often waited to cross the street with someone else. But like other things in life, I realized I had to take the first step into the street and pray that the drivers saw me. And miraculously, they do.
