Alfred learns that Iran has a Silk Road Secretariat. Its representative in the northern city of Qazvin – Hooman Babapoor – explains that the government wishes to develop links between other countries along the illustrious road.

Far from the city, at 2,000 meters above sea level, Alfred visits the ruins of Hassan-i Sabb?h’s fortress, founder of a movement known as “Hashshashins” – drug smokers and killers who gave us the modern word “assassin”.
Then he goes on to Tehran, an astonishing city far from the clichés, open to other cultures. We learn more about it from the young skater Medhi.
