Travel Diary Iran 2013 - Day 5 (Shiraz-Yazd)

After checking the car we drived towards Yazd, a city at the border of the desert, the city of houses with wind catchers. A city that almost entirely was build of adobe.

The car drive took about 6 hours including a stop for lunch in Abarkooh. Most of the 450km road was non-oncoming traffic.

Here you can see an Ab-Anbar, a traditional reservoir or cistern of drinking water in Persian antiquity. The wind catchers lead the cool wind to the underground storage tank keeping the water ventilated and cool during warm days.

We got to the hotel and made a fast visit to the town to visit the Jame mosque av Yazd.
