Sun and tailwind on a boring road. As we approached Tabriz the traffic increased, and we plied the city freeways to the hotel we had to book to get our Iranian visa. Tomorrow a day of R&R to see Tabriz and finally shake off this cold.

The day started with a glorious sunrise at the mountain cottage in Marand, and then a welcome breakfast with Akbar and the team. After that, it was over a hill and along a flat to Tabriz, with my raking cough increasing in frequency and volume.

    Hi Matthew, still following your blog. No idea how I found it!? But you started in my hometown.
    Very inspiring tho follow you! I also follow another cyclist who is going from China to UK. Not sure if you can meet though. He is now in Tajikistan (Zang), next to Afghan border.

    Veel beterschap!

    • Hi there and thanks for your kind words. My blog is a bit behind. I think i might have missed the other cyclist. I have finished cycling the Pamir Highway in Tajikistan and am now in Kyrgyzstan on the way to Bishkek. I cycled along the border road. Very very beautiful!
