A Night in Tatooine/Tunisia

Les Troglodytes:
Tunisian Star Wars

Recognize that?
Most have seen this place before in the movie Star Wars and know it as Luke Skywalker's home.

It is a residence in Tunisia (now a hotel), and it is well suited to living in the climate of the desert - be it on Tatooine or in North Africa. Sustainability a la the future, or the past.

Isn't it great that we don't even have to leave our own planet to experience life across the galaxy?

More pics here. (via WorldChanging)

In another example of the Other-worldly on our own little Earth, I give you Dublin, Ohio:

How Corny is This?

There can be no explanation for this without involving tin foil hats. Or misplaced 1% for art. Or both.

Wow, Luke Skywalker's boyhood home is now a hotel in Tunisia!!! Does that also mean that they have bellhops dressed like Jawas, and hookers that look like Aunt Beru?
