[:RU]It’s a pity that we did not potestit Iranian train and travel on local buses brought a lot of fun. No kidding.
The first buses in Iran are very comfortable, especially the business-class. Second, so many jokes have not been on a journey: happened and harem ride, and pistols in the street to buy, and daily prayer go …
Other passengers constantly sneaking glances at us, but their eyes were plenty of dumb questions «why they always take pictures of? «,» why sometimes they are attacked by hysterical? «,» what they have so much fun Iranian Louis de Funes on the TV screen «and» who is Kupitman and why they kept him neigh?

2. In general, this post will not only jokes and funny story about situations on the road, but also practical information on travel by bus to Iran.
So, we used the services of buses three times: on the road from Tehran to Isfahan, Isfahan in Yazd and from Yazd to Shiraz. Be aware of the information regarding bus service, we already knew that in the Terminal (a bus station in Iran was referred to bus station, and the bus terminal) to find the office for the sale of VIP tickets, then the journey will be comfortable.
So, Tehran. First experience. Take a taxi from your hotel and head for Terminal-e Jonoob. Buses depart from here to Isfahan every 10-15 minutes.
As soon as we got out of the taxi, we were flies local clicker and very quickly lists all the cities which are known to understand where we need to go. We say that we need to Esfahan and he calls:
— Come with me, — and, without waiting for the answer, quickly rushes to the terminal.
— Come on, let’s see what he offers — shrugs Lovygin and we go after the greeter.
On Indeed, Iran is absolutely normal practice and that is why barkers are already near the taxi stand.

3. Looking at the terminal, you’ll see dozens of buses directly to the platform and another five dozen scurrying around, like huge ants in search of passengers. These buses are owned by different companies to carriers competing with each other. By the way, the form of these buses are very pleased, because after a broken-down local taxi, we were prepared to wait at the bus station just what you want, up to the semi-circular old Mercedes ushatannyh

That’s why barkers scatter throughout the county in search of potential passengers. Their task is to bring a person is to his hand, that he has not bought a ticket from the neighbors.
The ticket for the bus from Tehran to Esfahan cost each of us 260 thousand riyals (520 rubles), the administration promised 10 minutes and the same shill took us to the bus …
