Just about the only reason I can think of to envy people living in a remote Iranian village are these incredible houses built into the natural topography. People in this region have been living in such structures for over 1,600 years. If you're ever traveling out that way, look for signs to Kandovan:

So much more awesome than one of those new condos. I bet they'd even qualify for LEED certification.
