Just east of the Afghan border, Quetta is a small town in Pakistan that is built around an oasis of water flowing in underground canals from the nearby foothills. These Persian subterranean aquaducts may be miles long, and can bring water to otherwise arid deserts. In Quetta the water is used for melons, fruit and nut orchards and vineyards, but not a drop of wine is made. These grapes will become excellent golden raisins.
