Balam - making (traditional boat) in Zabol
Zabol  is about 210 Km N-E of Zahedan.  Zabol is Sistan capital.  The Sistan region is the most impenetrable but also the strangest in the whole of Iran.  It is at the same time the paradise and the inferno of archaeologists.  Formerly a sort of enchanted garden, celebrated by poets, and the seat of refined civilization.  Passage of time has turned sistan into an almost deserted countryside which houses fascinating vestiges.
