Bach Ma entertainment center40 viewsBach Ma national park has great wildlife and well-marked and maintained trails. At some point, not too long ago probably, the park also spent a fair amount of money adding some other amenities, such as this 'entertainment center', complete with karaoke bar and indoor badminton court (the Vietnamese are mad for badminton). Unfortunately, the money spent on this expansion appears to have gone for naught. By the looks of it a windstorm or something had ripped off the tin roof of the center. The money, or the energy, has not been found to even clean up the debris by the time we visited, though it seemed to have been lying there for many months, at least. mudmine

Hey, it's like camping!40 viewsSo they say that south China is colder in the winter than north China-- not true in terms of outdoor temperatures, but south of the Yangtze River buildings rarely have central heating. So when negotiating the price at a hotel, you have to clarify whether or not you plan to turn on the A/C (the A/C can heat in addition to cooling). If you want heat, you often pay extra. Cheapskates that we are, we didn't pay for heat anywhere we stayed. So here we are huddled under two duvets with all our winter gear on, ready for bed.mudmine

Anonymous mosque39 viewsIstanbul's full of 'em, everywhere you look, these spectacular mosques. Hard to keep track. This one is over by the acqueduct if anyone familiar with Istanbul wants to fill us in.mudmine

EB in Beihai Park47 viewsA beautiful park just northwest of the Imperial Palace (which is in the center of Beijing), a great place to go for a stroll around the lake on a sunny morning. Here EB is standing in front of the nine-dragon screen. Old-style Chinese residences often have a stone screen behind the main door to block things from entering (evil spirits, cold drafts, prying gazes, etc.). Beihai, originally built for the emperor's pleasure, has a fancier screen than most places.mudmine
Reproduction of neolithic cult room36 viewsIn the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, Ankara. This is a reproduction of a site occupied sometime between 8000 and 5500 BC in Catalhoyuk (there should be some cedilles and umlauts stuck in there to make it proper Turkish), a site 60 km southeast of Konya. A "hoyuk," according to the Internets, is "an artificial mound created by the accumulation of building levels as a result of the settlement of people in the same place for thousands of years."mudmine
