I came across a photo CD of images from my 1998 overland truck trip from Kathmandu to Damascus.
This trip went through Nepal, India, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Syria, and Jordan. I was on an overland truck with 8 people.
During the Iran section, we visited the mud brick city of Bam. The Bam Citadel was about 2,000 years old, standing tall above the ancient city. We walked around the walls and listened to a guide's lecture. My mind wandered and I ended up talking to the guide's son about the illegal satellite dish his friend had, and about Batman.
Sadly, Bam was destroyed in the tragic 2003 earthquake which killed around 30,000 people. Officials are determined to rebuild it, but at the moment it is a pile of rubble.
