Overland by car from Kuwait to London
Day 1 - via Basra to Ahvaz
Ahvaz Hotel

Ahvaz is about 100 km north of Khoramshahr and was our first stop. We arrived in Ahvaz after sundown, and this photograph was taken the following morning.

The Ahvaz Hotel had been built not long before and was the best (and most expensive) we stayed at during the journey. It had a swimming pool, although we didn't stay long enough to take advantage of it.

Ahvaz is sometimes found transliterated as Ahwaz.
