man Iran dooset daram

Have you ever developed a really strong interest in a culture/country that isn't yours (and not the culture/country you're living in)?

Over the last year, I've really become obsessed with all things Persian. I read books on Iran, I'm learning Farsi, I cook Persian food, I just went on a trip to Iran, I have heaps of Persian friends, I hang out at Persian cafes, and I'm always up to date with Iranian news. I guess the reason for this is that my non-boyfriend/complicated relationship person is Persian, and I also work (and volunteer) with a lot of people from Iran. But God, sometimes I live and breathe that place/culture and I don't even fully know why... 18 months ago I wouldn't have given the place a second thought.

What other culture are you most interested in? Why? What do you like most/find most fascinating about it?
