Diamond in the heart of dirt

in #ocdlast year

On the way going home, we saw something so beautiful and amazing that I personally hadn't seen before. A lake had emerged in the heart of the sizzling desert of Shahdad due to the good amount of rain we have had this year.

Our jaws dropped, we got out of the car and started running towards the lake. I was just so astonishing to see something like that with my own eyes and not in an Instagram post. The water was so clear and surprisingly cold. I tried to taste the water and that thing was salty as hell though!

As usual, we had to do something, and we decided to do some yoga poses since we had just finished our yoga sessions and the bodies were ''ready''! lol
I didn't get to keep my balance. The salt crystals were too hard and sharp, so much that I got a scar from them after I got out of the lake. Navid and our other friend Hanieh though, got to accomplish the Crow in the water and I captured it.

Happy and lost in the moment, we realized that we had to rush to our meeting location since other group mates were waiting for us. I can't still believe that we got to see something like that in the middle of arid climate like that.

After that trip, the feeling and motivation for me to travel and explore my country Iran has increased drastically, and I'm not gonna be surprised if I see myself biking to some destination. This seems to be a start of something exciting in my life and I'd be happy to share it with you guys. :)
