    23. Where on Earth would you find the Mountains of the Moon?

    "Over the Mountains
    Of the Moon,
    Down the Valley of the Shadow,
    Ride, boldly ride."
    The shade replied,--
    "If you seek for Eldorado."

      Sounds Chinese, or maybe one of the little Himalayan kingdoms, like Bhutan, but I'm only guessing.

        Isn`t it on the Big Island of Hawaii-they tested moon buggies and Mars stuff there.

              23. The range Ptolemy called the Mountains of the Moon is widely - but by no means unanimously - believed to be the Ruwenzori Mountains of Central Africa. Ptolemy thought they were the source of the Nile. He was wrong.

              (didn't ERB set Tarzan's home in the Ruwenzori?)
