62km Konar Tahkteh to Tang-e Chowgan

The remains of the fortified defencesNever camp in a dry riverbed in case it suddenly springs to life. That was the advice we were given by Brahim, one of our friends in Morocco nearly a year ago. Last night we saw his words in action. Thankfully we weren’t tenting in a riverbed but on the banks of a stream. We’d been listening to the steady drips of water on our roof for a few hours when a roaring sound sent us scrambling for our shoes and out into the wet evening to see what was happening. The little water channel, which had been totally empty just a few hours earlier, was now full to bursting.

By morning only a few puddles remained but the events of the night before left a real impression in our mind of just how quickly a river can appear out of nowhere. Our stream went from hardly a drop to several feet of water in thirty seconds. Early in our trip we favoured dry riverbeds because they were flat and often surrounded by high banks to hide us from roads and houses. Looking back it was a silly place to put our tent and we were lucky not to encounter much wet weather.

Our day was rather boring by comparision with mother nature’s show the night before. The heavy traffic continued as we ticked off kilometers. We tried but failed to find an alternative minor road and so once again we could only concentrate on getting past the ugly parts. By the end of the day we finally reached some quieter roads and the ruins of the ancient city of Bishapur. A temple, mosque and large hall have all been excavated here but a little imagination is required when you’re looking at the ruins since the French archaeologists who first explored the site took most of the treasures back to the Louvre in Paris.

A narrow road through a gorge led to some interesting rock reliefs and we made our camp for the night beside a river, although several meters back from the water and under completely clear skies so there shouldn’t be any surprise floods through our tent.

    I do like the manner in which you have presented this difficulty and it does indeed supply me a lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, coming from what I have observed, I simply trust as the feedback pile on that individuals continue to be on point and don’t start upon a soap box involving the news of the day. All the same, thank you for this fantastic piece and though I can not necessarily agree with the idea in totality, I respect the perspective.

    In this great scheme of things you secure an A+ for hard work. Where you misplaced me was first on all the particulars. As as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more correct at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you what exactly did deliver the results. The authoring can be incredibly engaging which is most likely why I am taking an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can easily notice the leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really confident of just how you appear to connect your ideas that produce the final result. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point but trust in the future you link the dots better.
