I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

I hear you knockin'


I'll post more pictures from the wonderful old city in Yazd later, but here's an interesting custom: all of the doors have two knockers. The one on the left is for women to use, and the one on the right is for men. They make different sounds, so the inhabitants know right away if a caller is male or female, and the women of the house can put their headscarves on if necessary.
