TEHRAN REST DAY 2. 7 September, 2016. Blue Sky 30c
Today was an easy day.
Wandered down to the US Embassy, which was overrun in the Islamic Revolution in 1979, led by A. Khomeini. Murals on the surrounding walls now proclaim peace. The US is known as the "GREAT EVIL". Makes up for the Americans calling the clerics, "The Mad Mullahs". Afterwards wandered down to a great bakery producing Iranian sweet delicacies, as often is the case, they looked better than they tasted. Took them to a pleasant coffee shop where I consumed all. Then found a shop where I purchased an elaborate Backgammon board, made in the famed city of Estafan to the south of Tehran. Just need to find somewhere to display it, and learn to play !! Tomorrow we bus out of Tehran for 150 kms, then ride 37kms.
The traffic is madness!
Also came upon the Armenian Christian Church, the only Christian Church I have found.
