Old City of Yazd

Another interval of that backdated post ^_____^

27 June, 2010 | Yazd

Yazd is a must visit city in Iran. Well ,I didnt have the opportunity to visit this place even though I have been in Iran few times. This old muddy town is filled with badgirs(airwell). You can get lost in the maze of mud houses in the historic streets and lanes.

After 3 days of resting and not being able to go out much in Bam, I finally made that ride to Yazd under the hot sunny weather.In Bam, i did try to go out but 30 mtrs out of the guest house police would arrive in loud siren and few gunmen asking me to get back to my guest house. It’s for security they say. They dont want me to be seen as much as letting people know that there is a foreigner in town. I think if they turn off the siren and not having many gunmen around, lesser people would know my being there, right? I was not allowed to go and roam the streets of Bam. A Swiss and Japanese tourists were kidnapped few years ago only to be released few months later.

Getting stuck in your room with no movement for food after a week of hell ride is not a good way of resting. I need to eat and I want to go out. There is no way I can enjoy this trip without going and visit at least a place in Bam. But what can I do?

In Yazd, I stayed in this small cozy guesthouse. All i did was eat and sleep. The day was too hot to go out and during the day shops are all closed. Siesta.

Yazd is famous for its silks and fabrics. I am not a shopping kind but even if I do, where do I put those stuff? Lil G is too small to carry those.

Enjoy the pictures, people.
