Sit by a river. Find peace and meaning in the rhythm of the lifeblood of the Earth. (Anonymous)

Sistan (5)

Located on the border of present-day Afghanistan and Iran and fed by the Helmand River, the 2,000-square-kilometer (800-square-mile) wetlands formed a true oasis in the middle of hundreds of kilometers of arid plains. The wetlands provided those around them with an abundant source of fish, game, and fresh water for farming. Their dense marshes and clear lakes supported all manner of wildlife from carp to otter to leopard.
