We left Ashgabat to Iran sunday morning, arriving in Mashad at 6:30pm. We tried to buy train tickets to Tehran, capital of the country, but all the trains were full for the next five days. The cheapest solution would be a bus. We also tried to visit the Holy Shrine in Mashad, the most important sanctuary in Iran, and second most important of Islam, but they didn’t allow us to get near the buildings. They even forbade us to take pictures. So, instead of spending the night there, we decided to take a night bus to Tehran. After 14 hours in a bus with no toilet we arrived in the capital of Iran one day ahead of our schedule. Yes, it’s true, we are ahed of our schedule now. Tomorrow or Wednesday we leave to Tabriz, western part of the country, and then to Armenia. Later, I’ll post photos of the last days.
We just want to bring the Olympic Spirit from Beijing, home of the last Olympiad, to London.
During the trip, we are going to show, in photos and videos, places that had never been shown on the internet before.
