I haven’t shared much of my recent travels in Iran, but now I just felt like sharing a short insight of our trip in November 2017. We went by bus from Shiraz to Ahwaz, took a line taxi to Dezful, staying with friends, enjoying Dezfuls tasty buffalo milk products and starting our day trips from there. once we went to Shushtar, its watermills, the mighty Karun river, choghazanbil the zikkurat and other places close by. the other day we went to Shush to explore its ancient sites there. from Dezful we went to Andimeshk to take the train to Dorud and from Dorud we had a crazy taxi ride to Esfahan.
