Iran #6 : Yazd : arid and luminous

Back from Persepolis, one more night in Shiraz, and we were heading to Yazd.
7 hours bus ride across the desert, 43°C average outside. Yazd is really original compared to the rest of Iran. Be sure (you will) to spend some (2 to 4) days.
Yazd is the capital of Zoroastrism. No totally iranian, with arabic influence. No more big avenues. Yazd is a labyrinth with small streets, little clay houses where you get lost easily, gazing for hours in this monochromatic city.
All this gives the town a so visual aspect, and walking through the old charming street was a real pleasure. Unfortunately we stayed only 1 and a half day here. Next time longer for sure

  1. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays..

  2. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
