After fire-jumping on 'Red Wednesday'
Crossing a small river with a Bakhtiari family
Golsanem making the morning yoghurt
Inside the dome of this mausoleum on the Turkmen border, a muqarnas is being reconstructed
Karzem in his crib, in a land with no nappies but plenty of ingenuity
One of only seven men who can carve and repair stone at this high level
Trying out the rope device which measured Shah Abbas' 1000 km walk
