Day 39 - Tuesday 21st March

Yet another cold snowy wintry day. Heather is still feeling very unwell and so we will not be leaving Teheran today. As it is New Year, all of the tourist sites are closed and so nothing to do. The day's highlight was a long hot shower (extra fee !) but after it finished it was back to the cold bedroom. I finished my book and wrote some letters to friends in UK. At lunchtime we went to our regular cafe for an enjoyable soup but there seemed to be a slight atmosphere from the staff. Maybe they thought that we spent to little cash but sat at their tables for too long - both true.

Once again, no coaches had managed to get through to Mashad due to the heavy snow. During the evening, a tree fell across our busy road leaving only room for one car at a time to pass. True to the standard of driving skills, several cars managed to hit the tree !
