Which city is most likely to be a major population center?
-Yazard, in the desert of central Iran
-Kars, located in mountainous eastern Turkey
-Mashad, in a valley in northeastern Iran
-Galata, in the cool mountain highlands of Cyprus
Have you googled each one in http://maps.google.com yet?
What do you think?
I'd look first at the population of each one right now.
Deserts and mountains are not usually heavily populated.
