    Now in Esfahan

    Now in Esfahan for a couple of days. We need to extend our Iranian visa's just in case we can't get in to Pakistan. We understand there's bin a bit o' bovver on t'other side

    The roads are much better here in Iran then in Turkey, but every bus, lorry and ubiquitous blue pick up belches smoke and fumes, you need to hold your breath as they pass you

    Just a couple of piccies for now.....

    1) Watering hole

    2) Sh*t hole (comode Asian style)

    TAke some time out to visit the "Persopolis" while you're in there linky it's well worth a visit

    Thats quite a civilised potty you're on! Wait till you get down to Bandar Abbas or Bandar e lengeh They haven't quite got the hang of U bends yet and in high heat they're quite fragrant in summer!

    HodaFez!

    Cheers Joe ... we're not heading for Yasd but travelling more south to your fave spot Shiraz and Persepolis as per Jaythro's suggestion.

    We've been nearly all day here in Esfahan extending our visa's for Iran. We could have got to the Pakistan border with the days remaining, but there was no leeway for stopping off anywhere, breakdowns etc. Sue's belt and braces policy comes in to action again

    We've just made contact with the Pakistani Bikers Club and once across the border we'll be meeting up with them for a few days ... we're looking forward to that

    I could do with a or five

    Since you are in Iran,Try to get to the Persopilis.
    I was there in 1989, whilst working in Iran. It is stunning.

    Cheers for that Myke ... we spent a good day there, awesome

    We've had no internet access for a while, so will update further as and when possible. We've just dived in to an internet cafe in Sirjan for a few minutes.

    We hope to be at the Pakistan border sometime this next week
