Morning all, just a quick one as I’ll jump on later with some photos and hopefully a video from the other day.
Now in Agra, just seen the Taj, thought it was okay, but I know Dot’s tomb will be bigger and better.
Feeling really rough though. It seems at the minute that I ride a day, have to rest a day, ride a day, rest a day, so hopefully tomorrow I’m feeling fine enough to head to Delhi to try and sort out the Iranian visa.
I’m keen to hear anyone’s advice but I have an applicaiton for a tourist visa in the pipeline, a place it’s been now for eight weeks. I was thinking, should I go to the Iranian embassy and ask instead for a transit visa or carry on waiting? I’m just worried that if I carry on waiting and finally get a refusal – which is likely – I won’t have time to reapply at the embassy before my Pakistan visa expires.
We’d love to hear anyone’s advice and suggestions
Yesterday though was a good ride; we got lost, had to do an extra 100kays to make up, then was given a free meal and a roadside shed that looked to be for travelling Indian vagrants. Me and Dot; we fit right in.
But they made us feel very welcome and we had a good old natter, using a Lonely Planet guide to explain where we’d been and where we’re going.
Yesterday was also a big day for Dot as she turned 60. I pulled over as the tachno turned 60000 to sing her a song and give her a present. A little pink chain bought from a girl who hassled me on the street. It’s the thought that counts…
Pics and vids this afternoon, hopefully.
And just seen the tension in Iran, it doesn’t look good.
