In Mashhad we experienced the Islam religion by visiting the Holy Shrine of Imam Reza, a pelgrim place for the Sjiite muslims. Beautiful buildings and a serene atmosphere. After Mashhad, cycling again: the last kilometers of Iranian landscape are lying before us. Desert this time and we can tell you sweating is our main activity instead of cycling these days.
On our way to the border to leave this beautiful country behind us. We met so many nice people that we're quite sad to leave Iran for the unsecurity of Turkmenistan and the other Stans. But who knows: it might even be better!
