Just one week ago, I came back from a great trip across Iran. With a small group of friends, I visited beautiful cities, archaeological sites, and the vast desert. We traveled by bus, by taxi, by train, enjoying every kilometer of this amazing country. Arriving in Yazd in the late afternoon, we got caught in a magical atmosphere.
We were very excited to visit that ancient town, recently inscribed in UNESCO World Heritage List (July 2017), with its traditional houses, mosques, bazaar, and handicraft shops. Especially, we would like to see its brilliant qanat system and the badgirs, the windcatcher towers, unique in the world. And we were thrilled to live for some days in that ancient town, placed in the exact center of Iran.
But its light, the light of the sunset on the adobe walls of the houses was something really unexpected.
The lights of the small shops gently light up the streets of the town.
The light inside the bakery illuminates the children’s faces: they are waiting for their naan, the persian bread, to take home for dinner.
The day ends on a roof terrace, chatting, drinking a tea or a pomegranate juice and enjoying the charming lights of Yazd night.
