... So ends the record of my six week adventure in Iran and Turkey. I have already begun to plan a two to three week cycle tour for next summer , this close to home, probably to Drumheller AB. Cycle touring is now in my blood and I expect it will be my way to stay fit and trim.
As I review and organize my photos I may add new photos and edit the text to this journal. Feel free to return in a week or two for updates.

You can tell that Islam is the main religion ...
... for him to get a massage, as even painkillers hadn't helped him. So we walked up to the main street, and walked along for a while trying to find somewhere, but even after walking quite a while we didn't find even a little Thai massage place! I thought it was quite strange as almost every other place we've been seemed to have an abundance of them! Darren was getting quite annoyed though, because his head was hurting and he was sick of walking, so we turned back. Where we turned ...
