Sari, Iran

Back in Sari after having spent the last 24 days in Tehran working on administrative paperwork with the Iranian authorities to prepare our crossing by kayak of the Strait of Hormuz. Tomorrow, we will start to ride 1400 kilometers on our bicycles towards the Strait of Ormuz. On our way we will cross the desert of Dasht-e-Kavir. Administrative paperwork included: Getting permissions from the Omani embassy to arrive in Oman by kayak. Getting permissions to leave Iranian waters by kayak from the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Roads (Ports and Maritime Organization, Licensing section, Search and Rescue Operation), Ministry of Tourism, Sports Medicine Federation of Iran, Iran Canoe and Rowing Federation. Getting fully medical tested, scanned, x-rayed and ECGed. We now want to thank each one of these organizations for their support and cooperation!
