Zahadan, Taftan and Dalbandin

Written on: Tuesday June 2nd, 2009

A journal entry from: London to Beijing overland!!

We arrived in Zahadan to drop off some people from the trip so they could fly onto India before heading to the Pakistan border where we stayed on the Iranian side and then crossed over to Taftan in Pakistan the next day.

We changed some money at the border and changed $100US and got back 7000 Rupee.  By the time we left Pakistan 6 days later we had only used half that money as we were just not allowed out to shop!

We picked up our Pakistan police escourt and they took us through the desert to Dalbandin where we camped the night on the police stations roof under the stars!  The prisoners were entertained by us cooking dinner in the compound.

Through the desert of course was nothing to look at just lots of police and lots of guns. All good though and we felt safe with the cops.

Bye H&R
