15-18 October – Esfahan, Iran

We are now catching our breath in Esfahan, in the center of Iran. We are enjoying the old bazaar, the old architecture and the bustling city life.

We are tasting more of the tasty Iranian cuisine which is rich in taste but very mild, so the kids eat with healthy appetite.

Esfahan is by far the most pleasant city we have experienced in Iran so far. The commerce is intense during the day. The traffic is kindly chaotic. After sunset, the young people meet discretely along the river and on the old bridges which gracefully span the river.

Now it is time for us to experience the eastern parts of Iran. We are heading towards the city of Yazd. We are preliminary planning to cross the border into Pakistan on October 30.
