I arrived in Ahvaz, the capital city of the Iranian province of Khuzestan a few days after the end of the Iranian New Year. Holidaymakers had already returned home and roads were less crowded. It was the beginning of spring and the weather was very mild and pleasant as I began to discover Khuzestan which is to be found in the south west of the country.
Khuzestan may be known as one of the richest resources of petrochemical raw materials thanks to its extensive oil and gas fields, but beneath the surface of this wealthy province lies many untold stories spanning more than a thousand years.
