世界最悪の交通量テヘラン, The worst traffic, Tehran
Time to leave Esfahan and Mr Muhammad. We've been hanging out since the first day of my stay in Esfahan, so it's pretty sad to say bye to him. This is one of things that I can avoid. Hope I see him again.

エスファハン初日からずーと一緒だったムハンマド氏ともお別れ。これだけ世話になると別れも辛い。でも別れは必ずやって来る。また再開しましょう。そして目指すはイランの首都テヘラン。


To Tehran, it took me 3 days. This part was one of the worst parts for my cycling. There were so many big trucks, so I needed having a mask that I haven't used since Jawa, Indonesia. Inside of Tehran was even worse; heavy traffic and pollution. This city was definitely the worst city in my life. Iranian drivers are driving unbelievably crazy. I was cycling with hoping my safety.
テヘランまではエスファハンから3日。この区間は大型車が多くて最低。マスクをインドネシアのジャワ島で使用して以来1年ぶりに使った。テヘラン市街は聞いていた通り最悪の交通量。これはこれまで通った街の中で最悪。信じられない運転をするイラン人達。君たちは事故っても良いが、俺に被害をかけないでくれと念じながら走る。



The reason I stopped in Tehran was to see my friend's family who had been taking care of my way. I wanted to say "Thank you" to them.
テヘランにこんな思いをしてまで行った理由は、アメリカ時代の友人家族に会う為。これまでもいろいろ世話をやいてくれていたし、是非とも直接お礼をという思いで行った。


She is Mrs Kolousani. She helped me a lot. I took this photo in old palace of a king.
友人母のコロウサニさん。すごく世話をやいてくれた。ありがとうございます。連れて行って頂いたシャーの宮殿にて。


I couldn't see my friend's father because he was on his business trip.
残念ながら父は仕事で会えなかった。

Went to an area for all bicycle shops. Seemed there were everything for bicycle; XTR, XT etc. This area was definitely the best place for getting what you need for your bike in my travel. Location is north of Tehran station, around Razi sq.
XTRから何から何まで自転車パーツが揃うテヘランのチャリ屋街、これまで見た中では最強の品揃え。テヘラン駅北の Razi sq 周辺。




Tehran was very westernized town, so it looked different from other towns where I've visited. Many people were speaking English and more liberal; many of them followed previous system of Iran, top was a king. I felt a big difference between center and outside what people think for their country. In here, more complain about politics.
テヘランはかなり欧米化していて、これまで訪れた街とはかなり違っていた。英語を解す人もかなり多くてビックリ。人々の国に対する考え方も、前体制(シャー)を支持する人がほとんどのような気がした。ここに来ると、地方と中央のイランに対する考え方の温度差がすごく感じられる。会う人会う人、みなから現体制の批判を聞かされた。中にはかなり過激な発言も。


In today, the U.S dollar is going up steeply in this country. Their life have been becoming more and more expensive. They have no idea why. I felt this might be caused by the U.S..
現在イランでは急速にドル高が進んでいる。この数ヶ月でかなり物価が上昇し、生活が苦しくなっているそうだ。自分的に、このドル高 アメリカが意図的に操作しているように思えて他ならない。


I heard that there were many demonstration in Tehran against government. Seemed change might come soon to this country.
この状況を見ると、イランに変化が訪れるのはそう遠くない気がする。


It was a meaningful visit to Tehran since I could hear what people think about Iran. Now I will head to north.
そんな現実を沢山見聞きできただけでもテヘラン滞在は有意義だったと思う。そしてさらに北へ進む。
