I am already looking to see the oasis. It is surrounded with a wall. Inside is the whole irrigation system – concrete channels. The place has high date palm. More than 120 palm species are in the Emirates, only 20 of them, however, have edible fruits. Their fruits are used often as animal fodder.
We leave the camp. We have to pack the tents, sleeping bags, and foam mats to be ready to carry on.
Our stay in Yunyongyao云永谣 commenced with a funeral, not particularly traditional way to begin one’s trip. Most of the locals took part in it. Some right in the procession, others just watched from afar. Soon, however, cracking and music ended. Only streets covered with red papers could tell the story.
In our today’s journey across Iran we go off Tehran’s limits to see another famous city in this country - Kashan.
Originally Slavic fortified settlement, then castle, today memorial place with a park from where you get the vista of Cesky Tesin, and the Slezske and Moravskoslezske Beskydy.
A trip to Buchlov castle was so enchanting we decided to spend another weekend at Czech castles and chateaus. This time we decided Milotice set closer to us. The chateau is located at the edge of the town bearing the same name.
Slovakia is a beautiful land. We became convinced of this on our one-day trip. We started in a small village of Haluzice near the district town of Nove Mesto nad Vahom.
Today I am about to visit Al Ain oasis. Its name means “a spring”. After my journey to the second largest city of the Abu Dhabi emirate, I pass by couple of camel race tracks. These used to be some very popular races.
