nope - Iranian, not Kurdish; but supportive of their attempts to have their own country (which I doubt will happen in our lifetimes)

Yep - Farsi is the same as Persian; they're the same language! Iranian is not a language though.
I speak it fluently and tutor it - I also do the A-Level.

I have been to Iran, mainly to Tehran but have gone to surrounding cities as well such as Qom. There are way too many beautiful places I would recommend, but the perhaps most interesting one I know of is Persepolis. Best to visit in Spring/Winter when pollution is not a major problem (the country, especially Tehran, becomes very polluted and hot in Summer and so I rarely visit during the Summer). The planet's hottest place is also in Iran.
Favourite Iranian dish: Zereshk polow
Favourite snack: pofak (basically the original wotsits)
Favourite sweet: nabaat (not sure how to explain this one; it's like crystallised sugar which you usually mix into tea but can eat separately too)

I used to love these as a kid, but I’d never have them
now - I value my teeth too much

Saudi Arabia are not diplomatically close to Iran. Saudis can travel to Iran and Iranians can travel to Saudi Arabia however the countries are not allies. This is due to political and religious differences, especially because of the war in Yemen. Where Iran is supporting the Yemeni houthis, while Saudi Arabia is supporting a mixture of anti houthi groups, some of whom are Al Qaeda terrorists.

You can be Iranian Kurdish btw! As Iranians, we're differentiated into Persians, Kurds, Azeris, Balochs, etc!
