On the way to Zanjan

Woke up at 5 am today and started putting things on the bike by 5:30 am . We didn’t leave until it was around 6:30 heading north to Zanjan. The weather improved to a degree that I had to wear my jacket , and it got down to 12 Deg. C. it was a big contrast to the 45 deg. C we had yesterday. 

We know we had a long ride and it started in the mountains with great vistas and nice curvy roads but we had to stop so that the guys can get their liners on since it was still cold.

Two hours in we stopped at a Felafel restaurant for breakfast and continued until we had to fill with fuel and a stop that was intended to be a coffee break and turned out to be an Ice cream break. But we were attracting a crowd and had to leave so as not to create a traffic jam.

We reached the hotel in the afternoon while the temperatures remained mild and cool. Tomorrow we head to Tabriz .
