Cheers Chris. We will try and get ýn touch wýth you nearer the time.

Imaden, we are travellýng on NZ passports. We got all the visas in London. Simply filled in the forms which we got from the net and dropped off the passports plus money.

We did it in a particular order which we heard was important. India first, then Pak, then Iran. We understood that Pak and Iran want to see evidence that you intend to leave before they grant the visa. Good luck.

Hi Andre, sorry mate, we missed ya. We're currently in Esfahan and head on from here in a couple of days. Anyone else about?

We met a Japanses guy on an XT600 (Tomoy) in Doggy Biscuit last Thursday (12th) so you may see him on the road.

There is another bike parked out the front of our hostel here in Esfahan but we are yet to make contact though we suspect he's going the opposite way to us.

BTW, for anyone who doesn't know, fuel here is 7 US cents per litre, the people are friendly, the roads are great, but the drivers are suicidal!!!!!
