Tired, cold, & perhaps hungry .....

Another day when I was walking under the rain (not dancing on the rain !), I saw these young Afghani laborers squatting under a closed newsagent's shade.
I approaced them and talked to them in Dari, a very old Persian (Farsi) language.
They told me the escaped from the bloodshed in their country into Iran in order to be safe as well as getting some money for their family back home.
They told me the central and local government di not support the farmers, so they had to flee into Iran.
At present there are several thousands, or perhaps near a million Afghani people live and work in Iran under a harsh life far from their beloved relatives.
