Day 489: One hour before my flight I received a E-mail with a map of the place where I should stay in Teheran.
The mail was from Yasaman (I met her, Mohammed and Saeed last year on the way to Teheran) and she told me I could stay with a friend.
The 5 hour flight from Düsseldorf to Teheran was smooth and so was the passport control. After I got my luggage there was no customs and I was out of the airport in no time.
I took a taxi to Teheran and on the way I still did not have any information about my stay.
Just 5 minutes before reaching the address, Mohammed called me and we met in the street in front of the building.
It turned out Yasaman had send me an message (I never received) telling me her friend was not available and so I could stay with her family.
I met Yasaman´s sister Sara and her friend Arsalan and we went out for a little sighting.
Late at night I collected my bike an equipment from the family I stayed the last time.
Day 490: Because Yasaman and Sara had to go to school, Nina, a friend was willing to show me around.
We went to the Bazar, to some mosque, a temple and a church. We had lunch at a small unique restaurant and drove around the hole day.
In the evening we went to Nina´s place, where I met her parents. They invited me to a very tasty dinner.
Day 491: When I came back to Yasaman´s apartment, Sara and Arsalan arrived almost at the same time and took me to see some historical buildings in Qazvin.
After we collected two other students they realized it was to late to go to Qazvin.
Sara was pulled over by the police and got a ticket for using here phone while driving. Interesting is that the amount of the fine depends on your income.
We decided to go for lunch and had a nice afternoon with interesting conversation and smoking a water-pipe.
In the evening we went to the Milad Tower. The 6th tallest tower of the world.
Day 492: The next day Sara and Arsalan took me to a little party to some of their friends.
After a good self made kebab, some drinks and a water-pipe, we drove to a nice restaurant for a drink. We stayed in the apartment and slept on the floor.
Day 493: After a small breakfast we drove to another restaurant and had a dink. And yes, again a water-pipe.
In the evening Yasaman and Mohammed invited me to Mohammeds family and I tried some slack-lining.
Afterwards we had a small dinner.
Day 494: I visited Sahel and her sister who I met last year on the road and stayed at her parents house in Qazvin.
When I came back to Yasaman´s home I met her parents, who where on a vacation trip for the last days.
Mohammed offered to drive me to his uncle to Zanjan (about 400km). We called him and he was going on a bike trip with a friend and offered me to come along. I quickly accepted and we made arrangements for the next day.
Day 495: Mohammed had a small accident with his car, so he was not able to drive me to his uncle.
We talked about other possibilities and after a while we found a way how I could still go on the bike trip.
