Hello from hot Vienna!

Time flies and "Auf Rädern und Ketten"/“On wheels and tracks 2017” is already history. This year the event was expanded to three days and I have chosen to be there on the last day.

The weather was fine, while there was some rain, partially heavy, on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. It was impressive to see a 155mm ShKH “Himalaya”.

Hey!

I have been in Shiraz again! On May 2nd we had a free afternoon and thanks to Claudia, our Swiss guide, and the understanding of my colleagues we visited  the Historical and military museum of Afif-Abad Garden. As I had to see these two M36B1! Our patience was put on probe, as the museum did open with a delay of finally 50 minutes and as we had a tough visiting schedule we were already prepared to leave before entering the area. But it went well,  Inschallah, and I was very happy to see these vehicles. If I will be there again, Ii will bring more time and my camera with me, as I had only the Microsoft phone on hand.

Hello from Vienna,

it’s a while since I have updated this site. I was rather busy with other things and too lazy to sit in front of the computer. Although my statistics are showing that the military pictures are most favored, I have added something different today. On November 2nd, 2016 I had the opportunity to travel from Shiraz (Iran) to Esfahan (Iran) in a mini bus. We travelled on Route 65 and I hope you like the impressions I am sharing at

My proudness of performing such a journey was a bit reduced when I learned that a Dutch couple made this trip on their bicycles….

Kind regards, Werner
