Collecting songs
(BETWEEN FRANCE AND NEPAL) In France, I tell children a story and they sing a song that I collect. Once I have finished my french collect, I will leave hitch hiking to Nepal. On my way, I will sing with my guitar and i will juggle with children. In return, they will teach me a song wich will delight my travel and wich will meet others children fron the world. Spreading songs all the way, I would like to provoke meetings and to build bridges between children from differents countries.

Where am I actually ?

«  Décembre 2018  »

wellcome to Shiraz


At Garmeh, the houses are build in terra cotta and they blend with the yellow ground while the green fields with cucumbers are nice.

So, differents varieties of palmtrees grow near Garmeh oasis. Many of its give dates, one fruit that i eat each day (with figs).

The inhabitants sell its on the markets. When i walk with my friend Ben, we saw fogs which ran on the mountain near the village and from the top we see a camel herd in a sunbeam.

With the fresh breeze, we walk all a day long in the rocky desert with a picnic at "Ordib", a typical village. In the evening, we listen the nice traditional music "souffiste" played with Hasan, the hôtel boss and his two friends.

The day after we visited with Pouia, a singular salt desert which we take a photo. Then, with Ben we return on the road with hitch hiking towards to Persépolis. It's always pleasant to take the guitar and play a few songs with 3 or 4 persons in a lorry ( during 200 kilometers at 70 km in a hour ).

In the evening, i take the tent for the first time and in the cold night with a starry sky, a fire is very good.

The day after, we visited the singulars ruins from Persépolis which are more than 2500 years old. We meet students who invited us to sleep at the university; but it was refused at the entrance and we slept in a hôtel at Shiraz.

Shiraz is a very beautiful town with many parks and coloured mosques. The héro is "Hafez", a poet from 14° century ; each iranian know  and can recited the verses (about songs). During 3 days in the town, a lot iranians come to meet me curiously to know where i come from, my age and if i'm married (but not my measurements, isn't it ?)

It's at the end of my stay at Shiraz that i leave Ben to go about the hot in the Iran south, (near 30° at miday) and Bandar Abbas.

the next continuation is not the Pakistan. I ask to you for guess my itinerary for the India.

Thank for your messages; i could tried to answer at your questions in the next week, but it will be difficult perhaps.
