Zahedan was my resting place and above all the starting point in my adventure to the archeological site near the town of Zabol situated close to Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran border. After the unique experience I had in Mashhad, I was more than eager to explore even more of this Persian land. That was the archeological ground of The Burnt City. Firstly, let me tell you, when I set off for a journey to Zabol, Amin Hotel I stayed in was simply not having it, the idea that a Western guy is venturing into the politically disputed region. They told me to pack up and take all my stuff with me, in case I will not make it back. Besides, if the police forces arrive to the hotel, they cannot be bothered explaining my very existence, to put it simply. Anyway, on my last day to depart from Zahedan, the armed forces arrived at 5am at the hotel and escorted me to the Bus Terminal and made sure I purchased the correct ticket. Once I boarded the bus, they left the Terminal. I was now heading to Chabahar in the South of Iran.
