Yet another Eid today!! This one has a particularly Shi'ite spin - it is the day that Muhammad (Blessings be upon his name) supposedly indicated that he wanted Ali, his nephew & son-in-law, to succeed him. Of course this is not a day embraced by the (Sunni) majority of the Islamic world.

Four of us and all our gear are in one small car, but the roads are good and Mehrdad has a storage capsule fixed to the roof to carry baggage (the rest is in the boot).
