“World’s last tribes: Shock pics show people in danger of EXTINCTION.”

The title is misleading. No, those aren’t “shock pics,” and those people aren’t “in danger of extinction.” Their cultures are, and it’s happened for millennia.

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.

tristan_da_cunha4A place I could do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted;  stay up late and sleep in as long as I liked.  And blog via satellite.

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.
