West coast ....third day

In the morning I left there about 8:30 for Pancake rocks. After about 12km I arrived to Ponakiki where the Pancake rocks are located. It was amazing but it was rainy and my camera stopped working. I lost the chance to take some pictures.

I had more 80km to Hokitika where I was supposed to go to stay overnight with Bruce who is friend of Bob.

West coast ....day 1 & 2

After I left Nelson I saw myself in a nice road. I was heading west to the west coast. My next stop was Hokitika and I had 4 days ahead and about 350km to ride.

The first day just I cycled about 80km and I found a very nice spot on the side of the road for camping. A very nice place just by the river and some colorful trees around. I was the only one who was camping there. After having a nice night in the morning I face with a wet tent the problem which is happening almost every morning. The tent due to the frost is wet and I have to spend some time to dry it before I move.

Nelson and meeting Hoss

I arrived in Nelson about evening and I was looking for the address I had to meet my Persian friend Hossein Kouhestani who is living in Nelson. I mad a mistake and after about one hour I found that I am out of Nelson in the other direction, just I U-turned and tried to find the address. Finally I found the address but it was a little bit late and His shop was already closed. I called him and after few minutes he was there and just I followed his car to his house to meet his family. Hoss is running carpet business in Nelson and it was so nice seeing many Persian carpet far from home.

Tokoroa and planting tree with birds and forest conservation

WednesdayApril 9th.

After leaving the Balloon Festival in Hamilton I started to cycle to Tirau (which is in the South Waikato District) where I was met by Stewart and Kathleen Gray. They took me to a meeting in Putaruru where I was to speak to members of the Royal Forest and Bird Society. This was all arranged for me by Roberta’s sister Anne who is the chair person for the South Waikato Branch and her husband Jack who is secretary.

I have been in Iran quite a long time. I am here to develop the WNT Association in Iran which takes lots of time and energy. But it definitally is needed to spend this time here to have the Association working. 
To be honest it is not easy for me to stay somewhere longer than a month and is getting super hard but in the other hand I have no choice. Just need to be patient and concentrate on this work. 
Hopefully I can manage it sooner to be free again and continue my journey. I am also looking for a publisher to publish my book.
