We started the day with a very large breakfast specially prepared by our hosts. Kamran then drove us all into Tehran and it was pretty much the most terrifying ride either of us had ever experienced with reaching speeds of 120km/h and swapping multiple lanes and making additional lanes all with other motorists taking the same approach!

We arrived at Milad Tower, a 430m high telecommunication tower that almost has viewing floors, giving a fantastic view of the city of Tehran. Tehran has a population of over 8.4million and some 15million in the wider metropolitan area which gives you some idea of the scale of the city.

Having lunch with our hosts at a traditional restaurant. Lovely.

In the afternoon we made our way back to Karaj (at a rapid rate of knots) and spent the evening out for dinner at an Italian restaurant which was. A lovely way to spend the evening. Alcohol is banned in Iran so apart from what you buy on the black market it is a dry country.
