From Shiraz, it was another overnight bus north-east to Yazd. In a land full of really, really old stuff, Yazd has the distinction of being the place that even Iranians describe as "ancient". I got various answers as to how old Yazd is exactly, but the general consensus is that the old part of town has been continually inhabited for over 3,000 years.
