    ... a look at the grape drying building, which is made of clay bricks constructed with gaps between the bricks to allow the air to circulate. Inside the grapes are hung on upright hat-like stands to dry. We had seen some of these buildings previously and made a variety of guesses as to what they were, including that of tombs.
