comment Can Foreigners get married in other countries that recognize gay marraiges
Do I understand the question correctly in that OP is asking for countries that recognise gay marriage where that marriage is then accepted as valid in the US? Or is this in reference to any marriage? If the latter, the list is as long as there are countries. If the former, the list is not very long (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-sex_marriage has a map). But, what's the point, as the US recognises gay marriage, no?

comment Where I can find a guide in Peru to take me safely to the Jivaro headhunting tribe?
I'm quite sure that exporting shrunken heads, legally, will require a lot of paperwork. That said, if I'm not mistaken, the Jivaro also reside in Ecuador. I would suggest trying to arrange this from Quito or Cuenca. Or perhaps from Iquitos in Peru.

comment Can I overnight at the Amsterdam airport to meet someone arriving in the morning?
I would not be surprised if you could not find a seat to fall asleep on. But, Amsterdam is close and hostels are not too expensive, while a bed beats a chair hands down.

comment Hostels in iran?
You should strongly consider getting yourself a Lonely Planet for Iran. There's isn't a lot of budget accommodation in Iran that's aimed at tourists, but LP lists some.

comment What headwear are women legally required to wear in Iran?
@Relaxed I did not read OPs article. But the very same headline made it to the BBC, with their article stating that AF staff wanted to be able to not wear a headscarf in Tehran. According to that article, the primary issue seemed the wearing of headscarves. You can argue about the quality of the BBC, sure, but that's hardly a 'random website'. Either way, I also saw the update. I will edit my answer.

comment What headwear are women legally required to wear in Iran?
I understand all that, but I do not agree my example is not relevant, in accordance to what at least the title of the original article wants to convey: "Air France cabin crew angered by ruling to wear headscarves in Tehran". AF staff is not angered, according to this title, by having to go to Iran, they are angered by having to wear headscarves in Tehran.

Thanks for pointing that out. Is the information incorrect?

comment What headwear are women legally required to wear in Iran?
I'm not sure I follow. As soon as airline staff step out of the plane (and perhaps arguably before that), they are subject to Iranian law, whether they like it or not. The Belgium school is as much obligated to enforce American drinking rules, in America, as they are in enforcing Belgium laws in Belgium.

comment What headwear are women legally required to wear in Iran?
Wearing headscarves outside the plane is not something which the airline decides on. It's a legal requirement. Airline staff complaining about this, complaining about a legal requirement that has nothing to do with Air France, something that Air France has no control over, is baffling. Whether other issues are also at play is then not relevant. To compare, underage drinking is illegal in quite a few American states. Should, say, Belgian teenagers complain about this to their Belgian schools when going on a school trip, demanding the right to drink in the US?

This means you need a Schengen visa, yes?

CarTrawler does it for a bit less (book.cartrawler.com/…), but not too much less.

That sounds like a decent option. What baffles me is how this is actually news.

comment Refugees situation in Macedonia
You probably should keep track of what's happening 'right now'. I traveled from Thessaloniki to Skopje to Pristina a few weeks ago. And though what I think is the largest refugee camp in Mainland Europe is right on the border of Greece and Macedonia, along the highway from Thessaloniki, I noticed none of it.

@PichiWuana Don't be sorry. It's a good question, if perhaps a bit broad.

comment Driving in Ireland and Northern Ireland
@gerrit, as pnuts mentions, in many countries, the question is whether the driver is at fault or not. OTOH, in some countries, the driver always has to pay.
