We’re continuing as fast as possible eastward through a very mountainous region of Turkey. The mechanics back in Istanbul must have done a good job because the car seems to be handling this all very smoothly. The further east we get the more language barriers seem to become a problem, but we are managing okay, we were even kindly treated to a cup of tea while stopping at a petrol station, by someone who was very interested in the journey we were making while he was on the opposite route, to sell goods in Ankara. For the most part though we’ve has little time to stop today as we intend to reach Iran tomorrow, and have had to just appreciate the nature of this place while keeping on the move.
We’ve stopped for the evening, but are expecting to reach Iran tomorrow morning.
