The shipping company has taken over the clearing formalities. However, we just found out that the ship left Karachi... today (instead of 8th of November, as initially scheduled) !!! It will arrive in Iran on Friday 13th... On a positive note, Foxy Shahzadi is now insured in Iran. We got it done by simply walking randomly to an insurance company's office and found very nice helpful people who got the job done in half an hour with complementary tea ! We are leaving tonight by bus for Esfahan. We will visit the city in the day time tomorrow before a 14-16 hour journey to Bandar-e-Abbas on Friday.
