A 700-year-old home in Iran

700 year old Iranian Home. Allegedly, these homes in Iran, carved out of solid rock, were built on the order of 700 years ago and are still inhabited by people who have given them modern touches (you know, the little things like and electricity)

The Dar al-Hajar (Rock Palace) is perched atop a pinnacle at the Wadi Dhahr Valley, north of the capital Sana’a, Yemen. The historical five-story palace was built by Yemen’s ruler Imam Mansour Ali Bin Mehdi Abbas in 1786 AD. In the 1930s, the late Yemeni monarch Imam Yahya Hameed Al-Din added the upper story • photo: August 9, 2011 by Yahya Arhab / EPA

Africa is mystic; it is wild... It withstands all interpretations. It is the last vestige of a dead world or the cradle of a shiny new one. To a lot of people, as to myself, it is just "home". ~Beryl Markham | Photo: Congo River

♥ such an amazing place for morning tea . with a view of Cathédrale Alexandre Newski, Paris

Sahara Morocco :)   Firewood, cut and brought across the Tenere, often runs low. Here, a caravaneer blows on embers to reheat some tea.
