Esfahan  [Iran, 2004]
Alcohol is strictly forbidden in the Islamic Republic, so most socialising is done over a pot of sweet tea and a qalyan, or water-pipe. And that's just tobacco, before you get the wrong idea. This tea shop is tucked under the arches of the 17th century Si-o-seh bridge. The bridge's name means "33", the number of arches across the Zayandeh River.
