    ... seems more fertile than on the Turkmenistan side with grape, cotton and fruit crops. We continue to see lots of melons for sale at the roadside. Over the weeks we have been eating a fair amount too. In the heat they are very thirst quenching.

    * The coordinates AG has for the hotel turn out to be slightly inaccurate and we must ask the way several times. Our hotel is actually located within the old city walls and is ideally located for exploring the old town. ...

    ... br> *We drive around the surreal world of Ashgabat's south side, Berzengi. This is the brave new world of wide boulevards, white marble buildings, fountains and parks.

    *In just under 3 hours we reach the Iran/ Turkmenistan border. It's time to leave Iran ( an easy, rapid process) . How quickly the present slips into the past. We are very sad to say goodbye to our wonderful guide Sia. He has been just ...

    ... and interpret on our behalf.

    Mid-afternoon saw us on the roads again, trousers off and shorts on once we were away from the traditional areas, convoying with the Hearty Boys to see some of the local sights and driving up and over a plateau at the summit of a range of hills that seemed to stretch endlessly. Our original convoy was now scattered across Iran, breakdowns and wrong turnings having made trying to re-group pointless, the general assumption was ...

    ... dome has a 50 metre diameter and it is 100 metres from end to end. It can hold up to 10,000 worshipers.

    What a welcome contrast to the blue mosque for example. Silent prayer is definitely possible here.

    Early afternoon, we arrived in Ashgabat, the very bright marbled capital. I went for a couple of walks. The nearby parks were lovely in the evening with their lit fountains and many people enjoying respite from the ...
