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.
