    Share and share alike

    While we were sitting at our table drinking tea, a lady brought some plates with snacks over to us. Obviously we assumed she was a member of staff and that this was included in the price. Wrong. She was a fellow traveller and was sharing the snacks she and her family had brought with them. We spent a long time chatting to the family and having our photographs taken with them. Sharing snacks in this way is a very common gesture amongst Iranians, something we are not used to in the west. There were plates of sunflowers seeds (which you bite along the thin edge to extract the seed inside – quite a laborious process but fun once you get used to it), nougat and cheese puffs.

    For us ladies, it was absolute added bonus that the rule of the hijab is very relaxed here, and women do not need to cover up with a scarf and long sleeves/trousers. As you can see from the picture, Tiarni got rather carried away….. Actually, it was quite amusing, as we’d travelled with these five ladies for about a week by this stage, and we didn’t really know what they looked like. We had no idea if they had long or short hair, or whether it was curly or straight. It was quite strange to see your fellow travellers for the first time for real after a week together. I will say that the Iranian travellers, who were visiting this place, retained their hijab.
