    I loved the architecture in Yemen when I was there; gingerbread houses with icing and coloured glass windows. Some of those buildings are a couple of thousand years old and are built by masons hand chipping granite blocks into perfect blocks that fit so tightly together they didn’t need any cement.

    Those plants are something else.

    That is so awesome. I often wonder why such awesome places as these aren't better known. Another (far more barren) alien landscape that I really like is the area around Ethiopia's Dallol volcano. This pic is from National Geographic a few issues back:
    Most Alien looking place on Earth

    Sulfur mines are also pretty strange, I think:

    And of course everybody loves deep sea hydrothermal vents and the strange beasts that they attract (although I wish I could find some better pictures of those).

    When I went to italy for a month we stayed in this little town in tuscany called "pittigliano", and here's what it looked like:

    it just reminded me, that's all, of the cliffs-to-buildings.
