Cave in

Your brother left you a cryptic message and said he'd be back soon. That was 6 months ago. Now you're on a quest to find him. As you follow the clues, an address circled in his journal leads you here. What is this place? What kind of people or race lives here? How does it connect to your brother?

Note there are some anomalies: there are power lines coming in, one of the window frames is aluminum, and there's a stainless steel railing on the stairs to the right. The picture is of a troglodyte (cave dwelling) village. The homes were carved from ancient volcanic rock and some are 700 years old.

The dwellings are part of a the tourist village of Kandovan in Iran.
