Casa De La Tortuga, aka Мэлхий зоогийн газар

Tuesday, 20 June 2017

I searched for the location, and it turns out to be in the Gobi Desert in Monglolia. A Reddit commenter added this:

“Its not a house, but a restaurant by the Flaming Cliffs/Dinosaur fossil site in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. It’s not as big as it looks, and this pic is quite old. It’s a bit dilapidated now. 44°10’31.54″N 103°41’49.39″E

No GoogleMaps Street View – there ain’t no streets.

A Nice Country Village by the Sea

Sunday, 3 May 2009


Some day, when my kids are grown and on their own, and I’m looking for a place to retire with the lovely and gracious Mrs. Strutts,  I’d like a nice country village in a temperate climate, maybe near the ocean.  A place to let the world pass by without traffic, without paved roads, without telemarketers.

Maybe set up a little bed and breakfast stop for tourists and travellers, with a wine and cheese shop with tacky homemade postcards and hand-screened purple t-shirts. Maybe a place like this.  Or not. Click here, or click the top image, then zoom out.
