Arrival in Esfahan
After eight days riding through villages, small towns and desert, we made it to Esfahan, the jewel of ancient Persia and one of the finest cities of the Islamic world. Our plan is to spend a few days here, do a side trip to Kashan by bus, and hopefully extend our visa so that we don’t have to hot foot it out of the country. Even though we have already cycled 1,200km in Iran, we are still only halfway through.
This is my lovely old hometown. Unfortunately the river "Zadandehrood" is dried.
