What the...French Esperantist cyclists arrive in Iran?

Thursday, August 20, 2009

That's quite the unexpected headline. Comes from an article here in French. I thought perhaps that they were doing this for political reasons as well but it seems that they are heading to India and just happened to be in Iran at the moment where the aftermath from the elections in June is still continuing. They say that Iranians so far are the friendliest people they've encountered. They had planned to go through Pakistan to India but Pakistan requires a letter from a French consulate to give the visas they need and since that isn't possible they are going to the UAE instead and then taking a boat to India.
