Bread Oven Uzbekistan

Photo from AP Photo by MANSUR MIROLAEV

The wife of karakul shepherd Shakir Kushbekov warms up her clay oven to bake unleavened flat breads on the Kanimekh karakul farm in central Uzbekistan on April 4, 2007. The cart, foreground, contains saksaul, a desert bush that generates as much heat as coal. When I look at this photo, I think I'm looking at some sort of mortar weapon still smoking after having been fired.
