Homes carved into rock formations.

When I was a kid, back in the early 60's my Mom bought a Time-Life Pictorial Atlas of the World. Yeah, the maps were great but what had the most effect on me were the photographs. I remember two in particular. One was of the home, pictured below, carved into the fascinating rock formations of the Goreme Valley, Anatolia, Turkey. The other was a photo of some rice paddies in Southeast Asia; probably somewhere in Isaan (Northeast Thailand). After seeing those photos I knew that I simply had to see places like that with my own eyes. I've had the travel bug ever since.
