July 14, Protected content
Protected content an (American) InterNations member from Ashgabat, Tehran. I met two wonderful young 20-somethings from Amsterdam on the train from Ankara, Turkey to Tehran. We're all here as tourists - they read all kinds of information to prepare for their 8 days here, except the part about bringing cash. So they're practically cash-less. The Dutch Embassy said they couldn't help them, and now we're trying to network friendly Iranians they might stay with in Shiraz and Estfahan (we met lots of wonderful Iranian people on the train).
Protected content it is indeed a crisis to be a tourist without access to cash (they have plenty of cash in their bank account - but need to access it with a VISA card.)
Protected content any of you make a suggestion? The total amount of money they figure they need to travel through Iran is $400, and I'm sure they're good for paying it back. Several of us are loaning what we can spare.
