      Iran: Make Love not War – Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll on the Silk Road (audiobook) – With Colour Images

      This is the audiobook of my eighth travel memoir, Iran: Make Love not War – Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll on the Silk Road, first published in August 2019. I travelled around Iran in 2018 after crossing overland from Turkey, and wrote this book to report back on my experiences. Which were amazing!

      The first thing I saw at the border was a man’s butt as he stuffed smuggled cigarettes down his trousers. I met prostitutes whose profession was sanctioned as temporary marriage by clerics. I was offered alcohol and all the drugs under the sun in the north, and saw illegal pubs with people drinking. And I saw the most fabulous crown jewels and palaces anywhere.

      All this I experienced travelling overland and learning tips to pass on to you. I saw Tehran, the Shah’s Golestan Palace, Persepolis, Isfahan, Shiraz, and Yazd. Many women took their hijabs off whenever they could, and people played music under the bridges of Isfahan. I discovered the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism and visited its funeral towers where the dead were laid out to be eaten by vultures. These were near the Star Wars-like desert city of Yazd, where wind towers drew cool air through underground caverns to air-condition the houses of hundreds of years ago.

      I went mountaineering and saw old mosques and palaces and cafes lined with smashed mirrors and others with stained glass.

      The paperback / Kindle version, which is currently for sale on Amazon, has 283 images. 

      You can look at the images in an enclosed colour PDF which comes with the audiobook files.

      You can also listen for free to Chapter 2, 'Where I Went', on bit.ly/IranWhereIWentAudio.
