Not an Island

Back in November, I pulled together several map postcards of islands; from Nantucket to Thasos. While sorting postcards, I erroneously put this one in the islands stack:



St. Paul de Vence is of course a commune (city) in the French Alps, but the way the postcard has the hilltop community clipped, it sort of looks like and island... and if you see how it is isolated on the top of this hill, in a way it is an island... sort of...



UPDATE 1/10: When I happened to look at the postcard image in thumbnail form, the first thing I though of was, "It looks like a cut of meat on a bed of greens..." mmmm meat...

Ah, like those island mountains in the cloud forests of South America. And along the US-Mexico border: http://www.tamu.edu/upress/BOOKS/2007/gehlbach.htm

Speaking of clouds, what do you call it when you look at clouds and see a map?

Actually... at first glance I thought it was a piece of bacon that just looked like a map.

Totally fitting for the above commenter's link.
