I've just been looking through the many digital images I took when I was in Iran a short while ago (see this week's Feature of the Week) and I felt there was one I should share here.

But it was nice and cool up there (11,000ft) and there was actually snow - see the pic. Left to right: Mike Hancox (Dilitex), Andrew Pearson (Flowmaster), me, Steve Shakespeare (Shakespeare forgings), Rod Bell (MIRA).

On a more serious note, if anyone has any questions about the Iranian market or industry, please feel free to contact me.
