    Robert Byron's The Road to Oxiana (yes, a descendent of Lord Byron) recounts his journey with Christopher Sykes ( the son of Sir Mark Sykes, famously (or infamously) the British diplomat who in 1916 made a secret agreement with the French to divide up the former Ottoman Empire between their two countries) to Persia and Afghanistan in the early 1930's. He combines descriptions of absurd encounters with officialdom with dazzling displays of architectural and artistic erudition about the monuments Robert Byron's The Road to Oxiana (yes, a descendent of Lord Byron) recounts his journey with Christopher Sykes ( the son of Sir Mark Sykes, famously (or infamously) the British diplomat who in 1916 made a secret agreement with the French to divide up the former Ottoman Empire between their two countries) to Persia and Afghanistan in the early 1930's. He combines descriptions of absurd encounters with officialdom with dazzling displays of architectural and artistic erudition about the monuments they encounter along the way. His writing is captivating and oftentimes funny- every lapidary sentence is beautifully crafted. He's been to Herat and back, and at this juncture has regrouped to Tehran in preparation for another excursion into Afghanistan.
