Bring me sunshine...
And sure enough back into sunshine and sweltering heat the other side if the mountain. The Geography today was amazing. On the seaward side of the moutain it was like Switzerland with pine forests flourishing on the relief rainfall which obviously didn't extend to the other side as it became desert immediately we started down.
Car ran well and we are now in a very smart hotel in Tabriz. We are being taken to a banquet organised by the Iranian car club that hosted our trip here. Ummh, I wonder what delicacies will be on offer tonight....certainly no wine and beer as that's off the menu until Turkey tomorrow!
