In the Old City of Yazd.
This is a phrase that we so often heard walking along the streets throughout the many Iranian cities we visited. We can’t say enough good things about the people of Iran. We were there during Ramadan, which was particularly tough due to the restrictions of the whole eating and drinking thing during daylight hours. It was often an adventure to find food for lunch time; we ate mostly in “fast-food” type restaurants or at the hotels where we stayed.
We’ve included a few photos from the various places we stayed at during the last 5 days or so in Iran to give you a feel for what we’ve seen and done.
On a practical note, for anybody looking to cross the border from Iran to Turkmenistan, we highly recommend you change money on the Iranian side, because on the Turkmenistan side, it is very quiet and we found no money changers. This is something we found out a little too late, since we were betting on changing money on that side of the border. So now we’re stuck with approximately $100 US worth of Iranian Rials. With any luck we will pass another Dragoman Truck coming from Beijing so
we will plan on changing it with them if possible. Otherwise, everyone we know will be getting 20 000 (approximately $2US) Iranian rial bank notes for souvenir presents when we get back.
