|Just winding down another chilly but very chilled day in Yazd before boarding the overnight sleeper train to the capital, Tehran. We will be in a 6-sleeper cabin, so Fuzz is eagerly anticipating another memorable journey of body odour, cleared phlegm and more high-volume, all-night, animated banter amongst the locals. Her Fragrant Flyer miles will soon be sufficient to purchase a brand new glitzy tissue-box holder for the back of our next Ford Cortina. A few more trips and we can put fur on the dashboard ... is fake tiger skin too much to hope for?
As for me, I am eagerly anticipating the sleeper car being filled by the young student gals from the Tehran University Arts Department who were strutting their stuff for us in the chill-out room earlier today. Yup, I really do admire the Arts.
Who will get their wish? Who will be the lucky lucky backpacker? Will it be "Odour on the Tehran Express" or will it be "The Love Train"?
Keep posted and all will soon be revealed.
