Merry Christmas from Yazd in Iran!December 26, 2017 in Iran
What can you expect of Christmas while cycling through Iran? Not that much! At least, Isfahan has a large Christian community in the Armenian quarter where it is celebrated. But we left the city behind us a week ago and didn't expect anything. And so did the unpredictable happen...
By chance, we met 4 other cyclists from the Netherlands and Spain on our way to Yazd through the desert and cycled together for a few days. And cycling simply connects people... it turned out that there would be 20 cyclists in Yazd these days, so why not having a Christmas party together? Thanks to Silvio & Lena for the spontaneous organization and a great evening! The 20 of us could even enjoy 1.5L of homemade wine :)
Most of us are staying in the same hostel and we're having a very relaxed time together which makes this Christmas a special and unique experience while temperatures reach 25 degrees during the day.
Now we're going to hit the road again with a lot of nice group cycling, Persepolis and Shiraz ahead.
Impressions of our journey from Ghom to Yazd via Kashan and Isfahan will follow.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a great time with your beloved ones!Read more
