Khash

A journal entry from: London to Beijing overland!!

We headed up towards the other border via Iranshahr to drop people off at the airport who wanted to fly onto India for a bit of R&R at the beach. We arrived in town only to have the police pick us up and escourt us around the town during lunch.  They didnt want us in their town but wouldnt say why only that it was unsafe.  They told us that there were no planes at the airport and they wouldnt allow people to go to the bus station.

They gave us a police escourt onto Khash where they arranged for us to camp in the grounds of a mosque with a police guard all night.  So this was our first of many days with a heavily armed police guard.

We camped on the concrete that night - which lukily most peoples tents stayed up and we saw our first scorpion for the trip!

H&R
