Our first step of the trip. Kashan, small city south/south east and 4 hours by bus from Tehran (only) 150 000 inhabitants. A first rigorous stop in a very traditional city, where the only coloured clothes you see in the street are the ones from (very few) foreign tourists. Black everywhere. (A bit) frightening. But no worries, Anahide bought a nice iranian manteau in Bazar.
Welcome in Kashan

Just before finishing this post, 2 pictures from Abyaneh, a small village 70 km from Kashan where you can meet one of the last zoroastrian community in Iran (these ladies with coloured hijab).
