Time to explore Yazd by day, we left the hotel at 9am and it was already getting extremely hot. We started with a walk along a main road towards a bizarre. There were a mix of modern shops, and more traditional retailers, we passed a butchers with a goat freshly cut up, still with the fur on. It looked like a model ready to be assembled. In the local bazaar we stocked up on some washing powder It cost a whopping 20p. The shop was full and we wanted to get on to more ...
