I was wondering if there is an Iranian get together in Istanbul that I could join without speaking Farsi. As I am researching the Iranian market for work (I'm a business journalist) and planning a trip to Iran in a couple of months, I would like to speak to the people of the place about the economy, hopes about the lifting of sanctions (the mood in Teheran is pretty subdued based on what I've read, but would love to hear your opinions), geopolitics, Iranian food and arts or whatever other topics related to Iran. I noticed that there are hundreds of Iranian members of Internations based in Istanbul, and I wouldn't know where to begin to contact them. Just to be sure that my message is not misinterpreted: the invite is strictly platonic, my main goal is to socialize with Iranians in order to become more familiar with the culture. Coffee/ drinks/food are on me.
