Hafte-Tir square lies in the central part of Iran’s capitol of Tehran. In 1981, a powerful bomb went off in Hafte-Tir square, killing 73 leaders of Iran’s Islamic Republic Party, including the second most-powerful leader of the revolution, Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti.

And always has the welcome sign out.

Sometimes nearby shop owners come out to say hello.

Muhammad also has three grandchildren (who probably love the camper too!).

You’ll find them growing throughout the camper.

And no, he won’t make one for you. While he put his heart and soul into making this camper, he says he doesn’t have the time or energy to make another one.
