A VINEYARD GROWS ON THE ROOF OF THIS MAN'S HOUSE The landscapes amid which the modern Cappadocian Troglodyte loves to dwell are varied to infinity and they arenever tame; nay, they are always fascinating, and oftentimes even uncanny and startling. The modern Troglodytic usages addto, rather than detract from, thegeneral weirdness of the landscape. In the foreground of this picture we see an instance of a man's vineyard lying, apparently, onthetopofhishouse. Note also the threshing-floor in foreground. This is the village of Martchan (see pages 303 and 309), and Udj Assarii (see page 286) is.seen on the horizon and many cones in the background.
