While I do see a certain resemblance to Cappadocia, it doesn't look real to me.  More like a model landscape, as you'd have with a model railroad, but seemingly without the railroad.


Maybe this is, in fact, what Cappadocia looks like from a hot air balloon, which I understand are popular there.  I see no evidence of people in the form of actual people or vehicles, unless that's a person in red in the lower right-hand corner.

Well, I'm surprised, actually, that this one was spotted so well, despite its truly odd appearance: A strange landscape from a strange perspective. But I should have known that the folks around here are such committed travelers and researchers that it would be impossible to conceal Cappadocia for very long.


The territory was spotted by MAD right away, with concurrence from Roderick Simpson, and PortMoresby's perceptive suggestion that if it were Cappadocia, it must be from a balloon...and indeed it is.


Tune in Thursday morning for the official "reveal," with some great photos by our guest submitter, and check in tomorrow because, as he always is, Gumbo is already on his way to a new and puzzling destination.
