A maze of cob walls for one of the oldest cities in Iran. Mountains in the background and desert all around, welcome to Yazd. My main activity for my few days there was eating delicious and cheap food and getting lost in the small streets of the old town. I also discovered the pretty ventilation shafts used in the desert cities, one of the earliest forms of air conditioning. Met traveller friends in a hostel, two I had met in Georgia (but separately), the other one in Armenia… Small world of long-term travellers in one region of the world!
