Wischnewski in Iran’s North (in September 2022)

Hello all!

Visiting Iran was one more highlight of our trip… How will it really be over there, in Persia?

Very funny is that there is a great way to get in contact with Iranians: you just have to have an issue with your truck :-0 When you are parking at the side of the road, you can bet that it will not take longer than 5 minutes that an Iranian shows up to offer help and to make sure that things get fixed. It worked every time for us (we once had a flat tire, a malfunctioning sensor and a clogged diesel filter…). All issues solved by help of Iranian people who just stopped by, …and helped. And when the job at the truck is done you can be sure that you will be invited for dinner at the home of the person that helped you. …and don’t even think that it could be yourself to offer an invitation for a dinner or so (as a thank you, since they helped you). The Iranians really like to bring visitors (especially Westerners) to their home. Having guests from Europe is exiting for them and surely also a kind of exotic event in their family life. And be sure that every Iranian tells you sooner or later that: ‘please understand that we are the people and not the regime’. It always was of big relevance for them that we took this message with us: ‘the Iranian people are great, the regime is not…’.

So now enjoy some pictures of the north of Iran.
Best wishes from Heike and Carsten
