I have had the unique experience of serving in the Peace Corps in Korea and of having taught English in Iran. I was evacuated from Iran during the 1978-79 Islamic Revolution. The movie, "Argo," greatly mirrored some of my own experiences in Iran. I also travelled through Afghanistan just before the 1978 Communist overthrow of the Afghani government.
