While in Iran we decided to pay a visit to the Zarathushti Kurds and get to know them. We went to Marivan the Kurdish border town in Iran and from their crossed the Bashmahk border into Suleymania in Iraq. We had our own car and had planned to drive across the border and be mobile. At the border, we were told that we need to get the ‘Green Slip’ for the car from the Iranian customs, who required the original papers of the car and the presence of the owner. Since we had neither of them we were forced to park our car at the border and go without it.
