Re: Iran sanctions 2018 Q&A

I am in Teheran now. People are friendly like I have never seen before. Daily life, didn‘t see anything unusual. You should look forward to visit this country.

Bicycle on the train in Azerbaijan

Hey guys

Is there any chance to take 2 bicycles in the overnight train from Baku to Astara? Do the trains have a carriage wagon? We are running out of time and need to get to Teheran and want to do it overland.

Thanks for your answers!
