    ... running along the underground channels. The water is used only for irrigation and people refrain from using it for washing or the like. We went on to visit a local family who grows grapes nearby, where we were able to see a working karez amongst the grape vines. We were warmly welcomed into the family’s home, a traditional building, where we could climb onto the roof to see the extent of the land ...

    ... getting depressed. Tomorrow we are on another long drive day to go to Hain. We were meant to be Bush camping, but due to the terrorism in the province (or worry about potential terrorism) we have been told we cant camp and must stay in a hotel... ahh well. I think that is it for now. I now have a VPN on the tablet so can get onto Facebook sometimes, in case you were wondering why there was a flurry of posts. Facebook is blocked in ...
