Tehran!

Another big train ride took me from Mashhad to Tehran. In Mashhad there was a big mourning over Imam Reza. I have been very lucky to be allowed inside the holy shrine. It was quite special to be in the second holiest place after Mekka. Tehran is… biiiig so I take it easy. The 5th of january at 22.10 I hope to fly to New Delhi..

Kerman and BAM

Today I hope to take the 15 hour train to Mashhad, holy city and burial place of Imam Reza. Together with my couchsurf host and friends we visited Bam that had been destroyed and partly rebuilt by an earthquake. We also visited the desert and the Kaluts which are amazing structeres made by the wind.271220132164 271220132165 271220132166 271220132167 271220132168 271220132169 271220132170 Yazd 1 Yazd 2 Yazd 3 Yazd 4 Yazd 5 Yazd 6

Shiraz, Esfahan and Yazd

Shiraz brought me to very friendly host Nima and his cousin Sarrah. They showed me around town and together we went to world famous Persepolis. We played chess and Nima beat me in the last game so that made me happy. He dropped me of at the nightbus to Esfahan where I had a great 3 days with another Nima who gave me a good look in his life. The first night I played on a big party and sang for maybe a 100 people. It was amazing and woman don`t always were scarves in Iran… The next day I took a full day to enjoy Esfahan and the beautifull square and nice bazar. In the evening I played for Nima`s friends and family and had a very good dinner. Thank you again! The last day I was lucky because Nima had contact who managed to get me on the direct train to Yazd for free. Nima thanks for everything, hope your business and lovelife will florish. Wish you the best, it was great. Yazd brought me to Mostafa and his friendly family. Yazd is a historical and quite amazing town where there`s a lot to see. Tomorrow I hope to go to Kerman.

I am in Iran!!

After visiting cold, cold Erzurum we had some amazing hitchhiking to the Iranian border. Crossing the border was interesting but not really hard because of my visum and the visum for India. The same night we ” hitched”  to Urmye where we met our enormously friendly host Saeed. Hitchhiking is unknown in Iran and all cars are taxis… it was hard but mostly due to Ulgens Turkish we made it. Unfortunately Ulgen left this morning… she found a job in Turkey that she couldn`t refuse. So… I`m travelling alone but… friendly Australian Patrick gave me an Iranian Lonely planet and his sim card so even with the very very small money I have I might make it and enjoy Iran untill the 5th of january when my flight from Tehran to Delhi is going. Pictures might follow…
