Four seasons at once – this is Iran. Snowstorms and summery greenery – this is Iran. Iran means also fantastic landscapes, great people and ethnic flavor.
We are staying for a night in an Iranian house again. We were almost dragged into it to avoid blizzard on a mountain pass. Hospitality of the Iranians is incredible. During two months in Iran we spent only two nights in our tent! Lifestyle of the Iranians, family life, likings… you’ll learn about this from the video.
Two musicians from Folknery continue their journey in Iran heading to Australia and tell their adventures during past weeks. They were trying to get visas in Teheran and faced an obstacle: they will not get into Pakistan because of terrorists attacks. They recorded a song and made a clip together with local musician Roham in Zanjan. They keep getting added evidences that the most hospitable people can be met in Iran. Despite all its drawbacks, the country had already become their most favorite among the ones they had already covered on their journey.
To invite a traveler for lunch is typical for Iranians. To invite foreign cyclists is a pleasure. We felt this in the way they treated us with special care. It was a really interesting adventure for us to visit a rural mosque in the interior of Iran.
We haven’t reached India yet, so thought that traffic in Iran was crazy. We spent night at mosques for dozens of times and this is one of the reasons why we like Iran. You will always find shelter here.
We are talking about peculiarities of Iranian cuisine. It was our first experience at an Iranian cafeteria. Overall, we came to really like the local cuisine.
12Finally, we’ve made it to Iran! What’s it like? Is it safe? How do locals treat foreigners? And many other questions we were anxiously asking ourselves on that day… till Iranians in the span of one evening proved to us that this country is the best for a traveller!
