And again late departure because the staff in the hotel does not accept dollars. At least they return the dollars,
I left them yesterday as deposit. 140 out of 100 - a good deal. But it takes forever to find a place where I can change
them into Iran money.
Then a city tour through Tehran. Not really sightseeing, but leaving the city. 2 hours through the complete madness, or however the traffic
there is called.
And then into the desert. Heat and dust as far as you can see. To protect our engine we reduce our travel speed to 60 km/h.
Passing Semnan we reach again a hilly area and get rewarded by a good late lunch on the top of the first raise.
Aproaching Sharood it starts to rain. Yes, no typo, rain in Iran in August. At dawn we reach a little town called Mayamey.
It is one without hotel, so we prepare for the night at a rest area. At least the rain has stopped in the meantime.
