    ... 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. I guess there is a similarity, for the more morbid! After we had lunch, we were ...

    ... Due to the karezs being built, there is enough water in the area to grow grapes. There did not appear to be any wineries around; instead the grapes are used for raisins. Throughout the area we saw these clay buildings that had holes in it. These are used to dry the grapes where the grapes are hung on racks. Even as we passed some homes, they had huge drying racks in their garages. I bought a half kilogram bag of grapes and they are absolutely lovely. No ...

    ... br> The full length of the Silk Road (some 4,000) came about as a result of a sort of “International Pax Romana”. As mentioned the Eastern and Central Asian sections were well established early on before our common era.

    ... has survived for 1600 years above ground/exposed to the elements when it was basically built of mud. You did however have to use your imagination for the "forest of stupas" which was little more than lumps on the ground. Still amazing to think that 6500 residents lived there in this desert location. It must have been a hard life (as I sit under the air conditioning). Tonight we have 3 overland trucks in the carpark, the ...
