Walking in Shiraz

Walking in Shiraz


Posted By on Feb 19, 2015

It’s raining in Shiraz. In floods. I hope it will quiet down, otherwise we won’t be able to see anything of this town. It rained all night. In the guesthouse, there’s a sheet covering the courtyard where we have breakfast, and from time to time a drop falls into your head while you’re eating. 13h20 Seray-e Mehr Teahouse & Restaurant Luckily the rain slowed down a bit and we made it to the bazaar and we are...

A day travel to Shiraz

A day travel to Shiraz

Maybe it was better if we took a private car from Yazd to Shiraz, with a stop to visit Pesargade and Persepolis, that would have cost 110 USD, but would have saved us a day travel. If we had met someone else to share the car with, we would have done it; but we didn’t, so we are here waiting for the bus. This morning we took a bus from Fahraj to Yazd, where we had to ask to two bus drivers how to get to the main bus station; one...

Finally the desert. Feb 17 2015, 9.30 am We are sitting on the cold roadside along the Silk Road Hotel, waiting for Masoud of the Fahreddinn that offered to take us to Fahraj. The german girls will stay another day, we will meet them again in Shiraz. We are right in the middle of our trip. 10.50 am. At the end we asked the hotel to call Masoud, and he sent us a driver. We could have gone to Fahraj by bus, but it seemed offensive not...

Around Yazd

Around Yazd

13h33 This morning we visited the Zoroastrian temple Ateshkadeh here in Yazd, one of the most important in Iran. A part from the garden and a room with a fire continuously on since 460 AD, there’s not much to see. On a bench of the garden we took a couple of pictures with some local ladies… or so we thought! The husband in reality was able to zoom the mobile phone camera and only captured Luca and I, leaving out the two...

Verso Yazd


Posted By on Feb 15, 2015

9h30. Siamo in autostrada che aspettiamo una corriera partita da Tehran che passi per Yazd. Non ce ne sono molte purtroppo. Probabilmente la prima sarà verso le 11. Passano molte corriere, ma vanno tutte ad Isfahan. Che stupida, dovevo informarmi meglio ieri sera, avremmo potuto prendere il treno delle 8 per Yazd, perché così perdiamo la giornata (sono 4 ore e mezza di strada poi). A Tehran abbiamo fatto così presto a prendere la...

Secondo giorno a Kashan

14 Febbraio 2015 7h50 Profumo di pane appena sfornato. Fanno questo pane rotondo del diametro di circa 50 cm, fino, cotto in un forno rotondo, con a volte dei semi di finocchio o sesamo, ne comprano 2 o 20 fette e se le portano in giro sottobraccio, senza sprechi di carta o plastica. Poi ce lo offrono a colazione o cena e a noi piace tanto. Per i panini del pranzo invece usano un pane tipo baguette, però morbido e ciungoso. 14h15...
