The Fountain


Sometimes what you find while driving around is quite bizarre, and even more bizarre is where you find them
This looked to have been an elaborate water fountain, tiered basins at the top of the pyramid would have spilled out and out until it reached the base where it would spill down over the 4 sided brick channels before following a channel into a shallow circular pool below.

This would not be an unusual site if I told you that it was in a town centre in Barcelona or London or even any large city, but in actual fact, this was out in the middle of nowhere and surrounded on all sides by dried up desert, rocks and the kind of trees that live for centuries on a drop of water.
