Set off in the morning to a beautiful day and rode over the mountains towards Caspian Sea.
On crossing the mountains heading towards Rasht the skies opened up and it was pouring rain. As I had the motocross rear tire from Urmia the roads were proving very slippery in these conditions and I was averaging about 30kmh for most of the day not wanting to push my luck.
After a few stops in Gas Stations and under walkways for the worst parts, I found the first hotel I could make out and pulled in for the night.
The torrential rain lasted for 2 days so I spent an extra night in the hotel as the weather was predicted to clear up. No site seeing as I was on a major road and not really in a town.
It was all order in takeaways as no restaurant.
