Photos: Russian couple ride bicycles across Iran

A Russian couple has crossed Iran from north to south, riding their bicycles for 42 days. Albina Nurgaleyeva and Ilya Davydov rode from Azerbaijan along Iran’s Caspian shore, across the desert and over the snowy Iranian mountains down to the Persian Gulf, making occasional stops in the country’s ancient cities and talking with locals, who invited them to stay at their houses. After coming back to Russia, Ilya and Albina compiled a report on Iran’s daily life and customs.
