This is the other site of the tiny cemetery we visited in Cerrito, Valle, Colombia. We came here to visit "Maria's Tomb". Maria is the famous Colombian character of the novel "Maria" written by Jorge Isaac ( a beautiful, romantic and sad love’s story based in a true story that happened late in 1800s.
Five traditional gigantic Budgirs (windcatchers) versus two tiny coolair systems! As you would see in my image, there are 4 traditional gigantic Budgirs are erected by genius Persian engineers hundreds years ago. Then if you look closely you would see 2 tiny modern coolair systems on that roof. Unfortunately most of Iranian people who live in hot-arid climate use new modern technology coolair systems instead of using the old traditional Budgirs! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windcatcher The sad story is that majority of Iranian people refuse to use this beautiful traditional Budgir, and then few smart a*** people like Mr William Stranks invent a modern system based on Budgir and name it as "Monodraught"! http://www.monodraught.com/windcatcher/about.php I guess people do NOT appreciate what their ancestors made for them and follow the modern complex technology instead!!
