We are an Iranian couple who have lived in Edinburgh for the past 6 years. Pendar has recently graduated from a finance degree and is currently working full-time in his field. Negin is a PhD student in Neuro-Informatics (some sort of a complicated mix of neurology and computer science) and is currently studying her final year. Although our academic backgrounds are so different, we share a great passion for learning about different people and their cultures and languages. We speak English, Persian/Farsi and a little bit of Spanish; recently we have become interested in learning Japanese also.
We love travelling and take any possible opportunity to go to some place and explore their culture, nature and most importantly their food :) We also enjoy good music and movies. As hosts, we are kind, caring and very easy-going. We enjoy having food, drinks and sometimes shisha (Hooka waterpipe) with our guests and spending some time with them.
