For some reason train rides have a particular savour, and with the blossoming of low-cost airlines we don’t really enjoy them as much as we did in good old Europe. Luckily as Tehran isn’t yet an Easyjet hub I was happily forced to travel back in time and take night trains as I did in my mythologized InterRail days.

For some reason those green and pink neon lights are VERY typical of Tehran at night. You find them everywhere, shading their pale puti club style lights on parks, shops, sidewalks, you name it
So after 8 hours of night ride we arrived in Yazd at dawn, slightly tired but delighted to witness a particularly beautiful sunrise in the middle of the Iranian desert.
