Flour mill

 Ahmet  (the carpet man) on the right, toured us through this flour mill next to his shop.

They grind wheat into flour for human consumption.
Here is a local  farmer and his family who just had a couple of bags of wheat ground to flour.

 As we toured through the country we noticed these structures every so often.
When we came to this one there was a team of land surveyor's working on and around the structure so a good opportunity to ask what it was.
Turns out it is a well which collects and stores rainwater for the surrounding inhabitants.

This one, even though in poor exterior condition, was still being used.
