Again I was at Sharif. But the student protests have lost their momentum. Apathy has returned.

This morning, I talked to a taxi driver who works 16 hours a day for 300,000 tomans a month ($US375).

It is mourning for Imam Ali time, so the faces of women on billboards have been covered by squares of black cloth. This could have something to do with makeup, or maybe just lipstick - red is a bad colour.

Also, it snowed today for the first time...
