Hijab Hilde driving towards Teheran
In the intersection outside the hotel in Zanjan, cars were driving both ways in the same lanes
Hotel Park worked very well for us, with okey rooms, internet and a secure car park behind this gate
Driving through Zanjan
Along the motorway towards Teheran
(Atle and Tim are checking what is wrong with the rear drive shaft. Atle’s comment afterwards: “If I only had brought one I would have given it to him”)
And another car: the Iranian pickup Bardo – one of the most popular cars in Iran, judging by the numbers we saw
We have reached our destination! Visiting the Norwegian Embassy in Teheran, and we were extremely well received. Thank you, for your hospitality and all your help and assistance!
Posing together with the Norwegian ambassador, Jens-Petter Kjemprud
From the embassy we had a guide showing us the way to Shohre apartment house
– with HUGE rooms
We had arranged to go out for dinner, but because Iran won the football match against Korea, everyone were out on the street celebrating in their cars, making it difficult to get around. Instead we had a walk, looking at the celebration while waiting to have a beautiful meal of lamb/chicken kebab being brought to our apartments
To all of those who worry about us being in Iran and in Teheran, we are very well received, have met only kind and helpful people, and we absolutely love being here!
