I haven’t shown you Hotel Ghaboos, yet. Well, here it is:

Hotel Ghaboos right behind the Caboose.

Gonbad bid farewell to me with a strange statue of a Dalmatian dog:

Then I was on the road:

leaving Gonbad

I left the main road after a few kilometers of noise and bad air, which was when I took a narrow dusty path that went through the fields:

in a wheat field

Sometimes I saw buildings next to it, but that did not happen very often:

old factory

There were mostly just wheat fields:

And rice fields:

One time I noticed a strange house on a hill, but when I approached it I heard a mean-sounding dog, so I quickly went back on my way:

I came through a village once, which was where I saw heart-boy…

…and these two little ones:

little girls

And because the way today was going to be very short, and because the sky looked so dramatic, I walked slowly, taking my time, and I stopped often to do some time-lapse photography.

I was glad I was not on the highway:


My little dirt track led me right into Azadshar, the town where I wanted to go:

And when I arrived, I was greeted by this committee of honorable gentlemen:

I walked until it was dark:

And then I found the hotel:

    I also love the picture of you in the field. You should print & frame that one.


  • Ann

    Yah, that picture is like a beautiful oil painting. All these pictures are pieces of art.

    Love that photo of the 2 young girls and the juxtaposition of traditional and western kids fashion. The girl on the right wearing the Princess Anna from Frozen t-shirt.

    I, too, love the photo of you in the field!! Looks very peaceful. I also love the time lapses in this video. Especially watching the colors of the sky change over the water. Just beautiful!
