The airline came late to Istanbul and we lost the link with the other plane to Tehran. Luckily they facilitated us hotel and transportation. Arriving at the hotel had a red carpet in the entrance hall, not dirty it dodged it, I thought they had it booked for celebrities, then the "crew" the staff admonished me : "Do not.. !!"I was told that he should step on the carpet and advance through the Middle entry". I gave them my passport and let go them a... "give me your best room", and it was not for less, they had under their noses to the elite, dressed in their finery, in a city of seedy Turkey, so not is is to the celebrities as I… The next day it rained and we could not visit Istanbul, a few minutes of being on the street we captured us... and not from culture precisely.

I spent enough time in Turkey so give me any advice on our next destination, Iran. One of the councils were : "care in Iran !, very religious Muslims are". Obviously those are frightened or little informed neighbouring councils.

We entered Iran through the front door, I especially. On the plane, a few hours before arriving, I went into reason... we are about to reach one of the most religious countries in the world, most of the information that comes from the country is manipulated. But above all I thought... no alcohol in Iran !. Not it took to empty the plane carrito-bar, Needless to say that I've lost count of the bottles of wine that I took. Arriving at the airport, queuing up to get the visa, It was the happiest person in the world, listening to music and watching the sad faces of concern of others, nervous whether they would be able to get the visa. I remember they told me that it was a too chisposo mood and that it will remove the smile from my face. It was my turn at the counter, I arrived there as who requests another drink at the bar of a seedy gambling den. I did not understand anything of what I said and it seems that they noticed my state of intoxication because they made me sit on a nearby bench. Luckily it seems that I was not the only one, a Korean also earned a break on the bench after shouting four things officials. I think that I never had as pleasant entry in a customs control.

I had to remove all the airport, They told me that the luggage had not arrived. It seems that I spoke with someone important because a few minutes the suitcase appeared appeared in those offices that ensured I have not received anything.
 
Sometimes I think that travel makes me mature faster. This process that all travel to more or less speed. Unfortunately I do not think that it will provide me wisdom, the questions remain the same, I'm still the same idiot. The years brought reflection and sometimes some understanding. Over time things disgust me, I look at them from another point of view, one who a few years ago didn't look anywhere. I think if the road we have to travel is to learn "to enjoy life". The bumpy road, Sometimes it is painful and other pleasant. At every step I take I get a dose of anesthesia which makes me insensitive to pain and at the same time to life, the pain and sadness.
 
The life is finished at the end of the fight ?
I think that... The fight keeps me alive. I have the impression that the day to stop fight will be because he will be at peace with all and all. Then without any other sense in life which be, It would make sense without suffering that sometimes plagues us nothing, We could not distinguish the good from the bad, I will then leave to fight, I will end by this learning cycle that is life and then, even if you're not ready for death, This will come. Life, as the trip, a path that leads to peace and at the same time the decline could be considered.

The official name of Iran is "Islamic Republic of Iran". What if other countries added the country's main religious movement to the name of the country ?. For example Spain, It would be called "Catholic Spain democracy", Nice huh ?, just to think what they give me chills. I recommend viewing the movie Persepolis, a great animation that recounts of pleasant way political and cultural transition that occurred in Iran from 1979.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The first impressions I have of the country, If I compare it with Morocco for example, is that here are well organized, they are very clean, they have many bins and Iranians, in general, try not to throw anything on the ground.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The population is extremely educated, all are heavy and you not grab arm to try to sell you something, This is appreciated. It's easy to strike up a conversation with someone and that you invite to tea. Even if you only speak Farsi, your language, is simple to understand them, they are willing to make themselves understood. Ah ! I advise you to take instant coffee, There is almost no coffee shops across the country, only in some urban centres and sell it to price of gold, they regard it as the drink of the rich.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Isfahan appears in all the guides as the first tourist attraction in the country and the truth that I just don't understand this obsession by the city. The city that we liked was Yazd, of which I will speak later.
If you want to see modern life Iranian this is your place, Although does not differ much from the Western lifestyle. Here I understood what he considers the population by a tourist attraction, they love to visit beautiful places to relax, parks, shopping malls and modern life in general. If you ask someone to do you a tour according to your preferences will surely when you return home you'll never visit a park in many months.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


I have to admit that Isfahan retains some charm, especially for bridges, that light up at night and where you can see a fervent activity when it until late in the evening and sunset. The most famous is the SI-o - is Pol or the thirty three arched bridge. Isfahan has eleven bridges desiring to be discovered by the tourism.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The Iranians are trying to avoid the hottest hours of the day. Meet at the emblematic places in the city and make life on the street, sit smoking water pipe, out for ice cream, chat, eat, drink the tea...


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Although dance and certain types of music are banned in Iran ( unless held in private places and indoors ), allowed some musical events not organized by the Government, for example which takes place at the Khaju bridge when the night falls. If you arrive to witness safe that you dedicate a song.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


One of the attractions of the city is the plaza Imán Jomeini, where is easy to stretch and make the siesta at any of their gardens ( Although I recommend the park that is on the side, is quieter ). VI made many people stretch out on the grass and make the NAP. It could even dispense with pay hotels, simply pull a blanket or towel on the floor and stretch out anywhere like they do. Also in the Park, bazaars, mosques and relevant places there are toilets and water, It is only necessary to ask for the "tualet".

Luckily our goal at Isfahan was not only to visit the city, but that we served as a bridge to visit the minority Bakhtiari. For them, we move to Shahrekord
and since the place we hired a private transport. By the time of the year where we were we move for many hours to see them, the majority was already refugee in the mountains to take shelter from the heat and get best pastures.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The Bakhtiari are a proud people that are language and culture. They have very few possessions and their lifestyle is Nomad.

Certainly the effort was worth to visit, see where they live, as Cook,… We hope to repeat this experience someday.

Another one of the places recommended visit in Isfahan is the central bazaar, that connects the old town with the new and the square of Naqsh-e Jahan with Hakim mosque. This huge covered market is divided by sections, Gold and jewelry are sold in separate sections of the stores that sell clothing or carpets. It is one of the largest and ancient Middle East but the truth esque I found it nothing special, We prefer thousand times the central bazaar of Kashan.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The dusty streets of Kashan and the adobe houses seem straight out of a history book. I recommend a stroll through the historic centre of this relaxed town, Is hide thousand wonders, starting from hotels, many of them Iranian traditional construction.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Without doubt the highlight of Kashan, in my opinion, It is the Bazaar and the surprises that hide in the. A place which at the moment is not contaminated by the West, There are no posters of coca-cola and vendors do not implement, It seems that it is conserved as fifty years ago.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Despite censorship suffered by the population, for example to social networks and the internet, that allowed Instant Messaging. Another of the censorship is neither more nor less to the choice of a future college career, they can not study Atomic Physics, or be a pilot of flight among other studies.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Another place that I recommend is the village of Abyaneh, easily accessible from Kashan. But the interesting thing is not the people but its people, the women are dressed with traditional dress preserved with pride.
Unfortunately the town has become a growing tourist destination and a place for picnicking family and spend a quiet afternoon, especially Fridays, that Sunday he considered among the Muslims, day of rest.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Our next destination will be a place that we will take great memories and some friends, in this link you have all the Iranian Kurdistan .


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Remember that it is forbidden to take photographs of police and Government buildings. Follow this simple rule if you do not want to stay without camera : If the building has thorns wire better book camera for another occasion.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Sometimes I think that tourism moves according to fashion. Waves of tourists travel en masse to a country, unintentionally you end up transforming, guiding services to its residents to the sector, motivated by "easy" money and more nice work.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


When the country of destination is no longer fashionable bubble deflates, structures and buildings that were constructed pass into oblivion and the industry must restructure itself again. Personally I think that tourism transformed the country, is very complicated to manage it correctly. Bad management transforms the destination in a place without personality.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


I grew up in a town on the coast where I saw tourists at bars drinking so much beer had forces to ask one more. Others fell drops to the ground by ethyl coma. So widespread drunkenness tourism in some countries, that you have chosen to sell packages of Sun + Beach + alcohol at discounted prices, putting all them in cages called camp sites / Resorts etc.. I am not criticizing him, in fact I hope to be able to make any of these relaxing and carefree holiday one day, When you are ready. I'm talking about the non-sustainable tourism, that so much money and interests move, transforming to the traveller on a ticket with legs.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


In Iran, this type of tourism has no sense, for obvious reasons, There is no alcohol and women are not allowed to sunbathe in less cloths. If you are caught sunbathing with a dental floss only covering your back you can win a spanking, but the painful, of those who leave a scar.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The country is suitable for relaxing tourism. It is customary to have picnic anywhere, the only requirement is a piece of shadow. We carry a piece of Savannah and tightening the heat do use it to stretch us anywhere and napping, the last time in a mosque. The staff of the mosque to see us drawn tended us a padded carpet and a sheet, "the more normal of the world".

With much sadness, we abandoned the Kurdistan, We could not miss the collection of flowers in spring in Garmeh and surroundings.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Although most of the production of Roses is also a family there are some industrial productions.. Family productions collected flowers very early, Since the 5 to the 7 morning approximately, before that the heat is suffocating. It is necessary to wake up very early if you want to pickup.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


When to meet 5 o 10 kilos of flowers carried the distillery, where to pick up the essence of the flower and produce various products, as the perfume or the famous water of roses, delicious with a well of sugar and ice..


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The industrial production of Roses is concentrated in the outskirts of Garmeh, on the way to Kashan.

Workers in the cooperative of roses are of different nationality, Although dominated by Afghans, that they should emigrate to find work.

The city of Yazd has nothing to do with Isfahan, the historic centre, with their Adobe buildings are part of the heritage of humanity by UNESCO.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


It is a pleasure to walk its narrow streets and discovering life in this part of the city district.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


In addition, for architecture lovers, they have several holy places and mosques, that come to life at the dusk, When turned on the lights.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Our main reason for the visit to Yazd was to attend a session of a Zurkhaneh exercises, It is the best place in the country to see it. This ritual of training is called Varzesh - e Pahlavani and is performed in a very distinctive traditional gym, called Zurkhaneh.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The exercises consist of a training which involves various tools and stretching. This goes back to the Persian period and is considered world heritage by UNESCO.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Exercises are accompanied by a singer and music, located in the Gallery, that marks the rhythm of the participants. The exercises have spiritual and religious connotations.

We went to Shiraz, It is the third Holy City of Iran, After Mashhad and Qom. We want to witness this religious fervor which both discussed before going to Mashhad, considered as the religious centre of the country. Although really after visiting the two, We are left with Shiraz, for reasons which I shall deal with later.

Shah Cheragh mosque and the nearby religious complexes are awesome. To enter the enclosure women need to cover top-bass, the organization provides them with a piece of huge cloth at the entrance to access it.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Tourists do not have freedom of movement, immediately assign us a volunteer who will guide us for the whole route, It is the only way to visit the place and taking pictures. There is another option, be is in the patio central without volunteer assigned and without possibility of making photos.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


On the terrace you have a Kennel of competition pigeons, exposed in small steps, as if of the Ming dynasty vases he treated.

Several times a day the most devout Muslims attend the call to prayer. On Friday and the sacred days of Nowruz ( the Persian new year ), There is no a PIN, just as Friday, also sacred.

During prayer the head can never touch the ground, to do this they use a pill made from clay which support the head when leaning.

Another location that I recommend in Shiraz is the Nasir al - Mulk mosque, with a stunning stained-glass that gives much play to take photographs.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Religion here, Although there are some Catholic churches in the North of the country, is Muslim-majority, divided between Shiites and Sunnis. The Shiites come in mass to the prayer especially them Friday. Sunnis pray at home, they have very few mosques. Although the two currents tend to live in harmony, sometimes there are confrontations. The region of Arak is one of the hot spots of the country, where clashes sometimes occur, It is also the area bordering the Kurdistan. Originally from Iran religion is Zoroastrianism, the Persians practiced and which still retains some sacred place and few practitioners.

I still do not understand why the Iranians continue to ask for the letter of the menu when they arrive at the restaurant. In the 99% often they end up eating the same, skewer of meat with rice, does not fail.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Here the bread is similar to what are the tortillas, they are also produced in a similar way, Although Iran has a more refined technique; place the dough on top of small stones burning. When they removed the bread must also remove some engaged pebbles. Real queues form in good bakeries.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


One of the most famous desserts in the country is the faloodeh, in all specialties, above all which is made in Shiraz, A faloodeh shirazi, a very refreshing frozen noodles.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Other delicacies that can be found, If we seek to fund and are tired of the kebab are the : Ash ( soup with chickpeas ) or the Dolma ( rolled meat ).



Other culinary specialties of the country is the kalam polo, each province adapts it, with your own recipe. It's fried rice accompanied with vegetables and some meat.



Fruit star of the country and that we adapt quickly to our diet is green cherry, they are called common form Haluche or Goje Sabz, also liked the Green almonds.

I wonder if I'm traveling to keep me alive.
I remember my first trip to Mali and Senegal, then only a teenager wanting to enjoy life and it hit me a slap no more getting off the plane. First tried to meet with my passport the airport staff to then ask for money, but not met them well. After two children in Dhaka with the swollen belly waited that it finished the bottle of water to take it and sell it. A first trip that changed my life, He began the process of maturity and old age, because as before I explained, I feel that both are linked. Sometimes I think what would have happened not to travel, no doubt the maturity process would have delayed, and with this old age?, It can be Yes, It would have needed more time to find some peace, while I've shortened with these slaps of reality that I got for free on the journey.
 
Do I have shortened the life time traveling??
I'm not so sure, but I have the impression, Although I am not concerned because time is an invention of our, an illusion, as the past and the future, the time is virtual, because sometimes the clock stops and sometimes the clockwise turn sharply. There is only the present, so hard to enjoy and that most invest in search for a non-existent future happiness, Maybe happiness as we have created it as a goal to our efforts. If I have shortened the time at the end of my life as we know it a little I care, well I enjoyed it intensely and as I said, our life time only exists in our heads and is the cause of many evils.

The population is extremely flirtatious. Like being handsome and for them they spend many hours, especially women, they are also fervent addition and the shopping lovers. Iran is the country in the world where more Rhinoplasty or nose operations are, they come even foreign to put in the hands of the best surgeons in this field. This is one of the aspects that I liked, the importance given to the outward appearance.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


Personally I do not see people as good or bad, but as both or neither, There is no good or evil, We have created, draw a thin line, so volatile it becomes blurred at any time. Needed is good as evil, they need, otherwise there would be none of the two.

We could not miss Mashhad, in particular the shrine of Imam Reza, the most sacred place of Iran, its particular Meca. The scenes that followed were expected to find, tears of happiness and a high degree of religious involvement. The majority of the population expected to go at least once in life to Mashhad. To difference of Shiraz not you can take photos with the camera professional, only with mobile phone, the top image is made with a low range mobile tel´´efono. Either you accompanies any guide, by what we receive less information from first hand. In the main square of the complex projected videos of various religious magnets, talking and directing collective prayer.



The city, the second most populous country, is quite cosmopolitan, has almost everything, inclusive amusement park and gardens to walk or exercise.

We visited the small and beautiful village of Kang, on the outskirts of Mashhad, where its inhabitants lead a humble life, It was very easy to get transportation to the place, not so easy to speak some English.


 

travel trip adventure pictures photographer fotografo fotografia viajes periodismo periodista aventura viaje oliver munoz phototempus retrato portrait muñoztehran isfahan yazd farsi khaju iran persa iman jomeini shahrekord bakhtiari Naqsh-e Jahan hakim ka


The villagers work with the door open, so to see them and order tasks. We met the blacksmith, to the Weaver... There are no posters on the streets to announce business, nor do need, known among them. The road to Kang road is full of places to meet family or friends relaxing holidays.

Back to Tehran we wanted to visit the springs Badab Soort ( Badab - e Surt ), in the province of Mazandaran, so we had to stop in Damghan. The latest adventure of the trip. Damghan is the largest producer of pistachios in the country, which makes it one of the largest producers in the world.

The road to the springs is very beautiful, in some areas semi-desert and mostly uninhabited. Driver, as in most of the time that he hires a private transport, you have no idea of where it is directed, and they must be constantly asking Locals. In one of their mistakes we deviate a few kilometers, We went to the North of the province. The fog appeared suddenly, visibility was reduced to a few metres and the cold was present. The North of the province of Mazandaran reminded me to the lush forests of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

We arrived at the springs and we were not disappointed. We wanted them to visit in the afternoon to have a different point of view. All visit the springs in the morning, that is when most colorful are the colors. If your still eye retina is health you can find on the internet the Badab Soort and you will find hundreds of supersaturated and excessively manipulated photographs.
We arrived at the place, of difficult access, a few four wheel drive trucks are needed to get to the place.
Changes in climate at this time of the year are pretty sudden, the wind was very strong and black clouds covering it all approached us full speed, a full-fledged storm. Shortly after we lost visual contact with the other, and shouting met everyone in the truck again. The scenery was worth, photos and adventure.

We have just the travel in the capital, Tehran, the most cosmopolitan city of the country and the less interesting journey. A city like any other, without many attractions beyond the mountains near the city, the enormous central bazaar and towers Milad and Azadi.

What we liked was the flea market in Meydan - e Azadi metro station outdoor. Does not appear in tourist guides and it is quite amused by all the activity happening in it.

Iran is an ideal destination for any type of tourism, least for the tourism of drunkenness, It is even ideal for visiting family, long as they don't leave the classic routes, because it is also a very large and varied country, where sometimes are the conditions on some points not the most suitable for a comfortable trip.
