Vic , le nez collé au pare-brise, suivait les feux arrière des véhicules de la brigade d'intervention, essuie-glaces à fond, en pleine réflexion sur l'étrangeté de la nature humaine, sur le mystère de la génétique. Là où lui devait composer avec cette anomalie de la mémoire, d'autres avaient sans doute à le faire avec des replis bien plus sombres de l'esprit. Pour des individus de la trempe de Delpierre ou de Jeanson, à cause d'un mauvais câblage dans leur tête, kidnapper une pauvre fille ou violer un mort était aussi naturel que jouer une partie de backgammon.

Armenia - Yerevan - Երևան - Capital & largest city of Armenia - One of the world's oldest continuously-inhabited cities - Mount Ararat & City View from Cascade - Huge stairwell built into a Yerevan hillside

 

Ararat rises from a flat plain and dominates the skyline of Armenia's capital, Yerevan. Since ancient times, Ararat has been revered by the Armenians as their spiritual home. Today, it is the national symbol of Armenia. The mountain is often depicted by Armenian artists on paintings, obsidian engravings, backgammon boards and other artifacts. From Yerevan, and throughout much of the country, citizens and tourists get a clear glimpse of both peaks, Mount Ararat and Little Ararat.

At the entrance you will find to pavilions, open for everyone to enjoy the company of others while having a tea or gambling.

 

The 'Salon de la Chine' is an inviting lounge for a round of backgammon or to share the latest gossips with others.

 

On the opposite you will find the 'Salon blanc' a ballroom for dancing and concerts.

  

For all of you who love to enjoy a ride on a horseback we installed a cross country tournament in the 'Bois de Magritte'. It is open for everyone to use.

 

Soon we will publish a timetable with fixed weekly events, like wine tasting, dances, gambling nights and horse riding championships.

 

If you wish to host your own event in one of our public areas, do not hesitate to either contact Florens de Montgelas (eganobelius) or Benoit de Montgelas (ZeustheImmortal)

 

We are looking forward to welcoming you very soon in Magritte.

Have a great week!

The area of Ortakoy is magical mainly because of this mosque. 10 metres away from this mosque is the most popular rock bars of Turkey. It's also full with cafe's to play tavla (backgammon), smoke some "nargile" and to drink some cay (chay/ tea). In Ortakoy there are churches, a synagogue and this beautiful mosque. All religions in the same area. The mosque is on the European side of the city and the birdge connects to the Anatolian side of the city.

Backgammon is one of the oldest board games for two players. The playing pieces are moved according to the roll of dice, and a player wins by removing all of his pieces from the board before his opponent. There are many variants of backgammon, most of which share common traits. Backgammon is a member of the tables family, one of the oldest classes of board games in the world.

  

Although luck is involved and factors into the outcome, strategy plays a more important role in the long run. With each roll of the dice, players must choose from numerous options for moving their checkers and anticipate possible counter-moves by the opponent. In variants that originate from early 20th century New York, players may raise the stakes during the game. There is an established repertoire of common tactics and occurrences.

  

Like chess, backgammon has been studied with great interest by computer scientists. Owing to this research, backgammon software has been developed capable of beating world-class human players.

A compact travel games set Josh got for Christmas (yes I did say Christmas, it really doesn't feel that long ago), the little chess pieces are really quite small, less than 1cm diameter and they are magnetic. When you open up the case you can also play backgammon (which I've never understood how to play) and checkers. We will be going away for a few days next week, we must remember to bring this along.

Ledra Street is a major shopping thoroughfare in central Nicosia, Cyprus. The name refers to the ancient city-kingdom of Ledra, established in 1050 BC, that was located in the centre of the island where the capital city is today. During the Cypriot struggle for self determination in the late 1950s, the street was nicknamed by the British colonists as The Murder Mile. Traditionally, Ledra Street was the main shopping street of the capital, although in recent years it has been superseded by more accessible streets further out from the centre. Properties on the street are largely for commercial use and command some of the highest real estate prices on the island. The street leads off Eleftheria square, runs in a South to North direction and is about 1 km long...

Backgammon game at a well-known place of old city: Affan's tea house

 

Jan 2010

Hatay, Turkey

  

www.ozgurcakir.net

After a Saturday shopping spree, I was hoping that this amazing light would be on these beautiful autumn trees as I drove home...

 

This is the south side of the avenue of trees (appearing further down in my stream “Avenue”) and it leads to an old farmhouse.

 

(My WiFi is at best, sporadic and glacial-paced, or, at worst, completely uncooperative! I’m trying to catch up, whenever I can...Means Netflix and Amazon Prime are also inaccessible, leaving lots of time for backgammon and navel-gazing...)

Istanbul - Sakirin Camii Moschee

 

Das Fantastische an Istanbul ist die unglaubliche Breite an Eindrücken, die diese Stadt hinterlässt. Von dem kitschigsten Sonnenuntergang hinter der Minarett-gespickten Silhouette von Sultanahmet über das ganz eigene Straßenleben mit Tee, Backgammon und Wasserpfeife bis hin zu modernen architektonischen Perlen - Istanbul hat dies alles im Portfolio! Und das Meiste davon auch nicht zu knapp.

 

Heute gibt es etwas Modernes im Schwarz-Weiß Fine-Art-Look: die Sakirin Camii Moschee aus dem asiatischen Stadtteil Üsküdar. Fertiggestellt im Mai 2009 gilt sie bis heute als die modernste Moschee des Landes und ist außerdem die erste Moschee, bei dessen Bau eine Architektin beteiligt war: der Innenraum wurde von Zeynep Fadillioglu geplant.

 

Vielleicht ein Lichtblick bei dem vielen aktuellen Schatten in der Türkei, dass es doch zukunftsgewandt sein kann in religiösen Fragen.

 

Genießt den freien Tag!

Istanbul - Sakirin Camii Mosque

 

Probably the most modern mosque in Istanbul (or whole Turkye) is the Sakirin Camii Mosque in the asian quarter Üsküdar.

 

Here, you'll find the details: www.schmaidt.de/2016/03/28/istanbul-sakirin-camii/
