Yazd – Iran

I briefly stopped here between Toudeshk and Zahedan in Iran. It was a Friday so everything was closed, except for the trully inspirational water museum. It showed the many ingenious ways the locals dig tunnels for irrigation, drinking, waste disposal, and even cool (literally, 10 degrees lower than on the surface) places to hang out.
