Namaste, (hello indian)
From India and Udaipur, i give you the 10° treck week without the high heat in Rajastan.
In the bus from Shiraz to Bandar Abbas, i meet Esan, Adi, Rahim, Ali and Ali.
These 5 students invit me to follow they for Kish Island and they say to me that it's the only place in Iran where you can swim and take your tent. "take of your clothes isn't convenient in Iran".
The heat and their liking decide me to set in the taxi. The boys speak a little "english" and me a little "farsi", i think that island is at 30 km.
In fact, the taxi will stop after 300 km and after 40 ' in a small boat where i take a buttockache during 2 days.At the evening we look at the sun in the sea which come from the yellow to the red.
With big surprise i see buildings in front of me; Kish is a rich island.
The roads are maintained (no hole),artificial trees with electric garlands light the streets where you can hear the local radio. There are even supermarkets (not in Iran).
At daybreak, first swim in the transparent sea "the Gulf Persic" where i see 2 babies sharks and a tunny group (very nice). The more dangerous is the sea-urchins on the coral, don't walk on this animal.
The day after, i ride a bike for the round of the island; 40 km for the front wheel and 50 for the second, because it's wry after 10 '.
There is not a lot végétation on the island and the oil refineries are on the desertic part of the country.
I prefer look at the sea where there are birds like white ibis, budgerigars with red beaks, and small birds which fluorescent green.
I leave this island on the sunday with the 5 happy boys to Bandar Abbas, where there are arabic, african and persan people.
The monday 17 march is not confortable even i'm sit in the boat during 7 hours and after 4 hours in a plane which go at Ahmadabad.
I find again the Rajastan and India where i was 2 years ago and for me it's very différent than Iran.
Now, i don't speak about, because it's finish for the 10° week.

PS1: I would prefer don't use plane but Pakistan isn't autorised for the crossing and then i'm not able to swim more than 3 weeks.
PS2: I recommend at the teenagers and adults to watch the film "Persépolis", so that you discover the life in Iran with humour and émotion.
