July 16, Day 28. From Maku to Tabriz. Road surface very bad and lots of “bumps” to slow traffic thru towns but they are unmarked and not easily visible. Took a few hard bumps, and resulting in 3 broken spokes. As I repair the wheel, a big crowd of children gathered around , photo of repair team attached.
Finally made it to Tabriz at 10:30 pm. Got a taxi to guide me to a hotel , and followed him behind thru the city traffic. Just go and don’t care. The right of way for those who dare. Tabriz is a very big city. Taxi took me to a new hotel “ Ahrab hotel “ , nice I am happy with it. No meals whole day.
