Iran extension in Zanjan

We extended our visa in Zanjan.
It was a bit of a hassle, although everybody was very friendly.
One of the soldiers speaks English, Omid, he was very helpful.

First they wanted us to go to another city to extend (Shiraz, just 800 km away), but we persisted. After a while they accepted our request for extension. We filled out the same form a couple of times. Went to Melli Bank to pay. Came back with the receipt and then didn't get an extension just yet..

We applied for extension on Tuesday, with our visa expiring on Friday. After paying and everything it turned out to be not possible. First they wanted us to come back on Saturday, after it expired. Then we were allowed to come back on Wednesday, the next day, to pick up the extension.

Zanjan has a nice museum and a good coffee place (see iOverlander) so we survived.

It took about three hours the first day, the second day about one hour.
