Iran 28 September to 7 October 2003

  • I found the part of Iran that I visited (Teheran, Karaj, Zanjan) very barren, dry and stark: steppe-like. The south-side of the Elbourz mountain  range which runs west-east north to Zanjan and Teheran is devoid of trees as well. Only the campus, some city parks and some living quarters (e.g. near the Karaj river) are relatively green....Rients Niks reports.
