speaking of living in a cave, here is a cave in cappadocia that is my new dream home.

“some of the couple’s caves remain works in progress, used to store their various collections: decorative wrought iron, iranian copper trays, antique brass beds, terra-cotta amphora… but other spaces have been left untouched… as a sort of ‘garden of impermanence.'” – beautiful. story & photos (including a view from the outside of the sprawling cave complex) from the nyt.
