We visited Shams tower for morning tea and heard about the horns covering the tower which were supposed to be the animal this man had hunted in one day.
The Black church in Chaldoran (a UNESCO World Heritage site) was so called because of the black bricks used originally. An interesting explore and the original part of the church made up the altar area of the later church.
We drove on with Hassam, our guide, having planned a barbecue for lunch. We had no idea what to expect as we pulled off the road and walked across some fields with the farmers working in them. I think each of us were a little questioning as to how this would come off. However to our surprise the barbecue was delightful.
A charcoal fire was started and the chicken threaded onto metal kebabs. These were laid over the coals and together with local bread, yogurt a feast was had. Finished with some fresh fruit and we had a wonderful lunch.
Arriving in Maku, our last night in Iran, we had a group dinner. We farewelled Pat and David (Gingers owners) who were driving back to Tehran and flying back to Melbourne. Ginger is being shipped back to hopefully be repaired there.
