Extractions: You can begin your trip in this charming luxuriantly green little region of ours from the endless hazelnut orchards and foaming sea of Akcakoca. Let us not neglect, however, to mention the industrial cities of Eregli, Zonguldak, Karabuk and two cities of the interior one, Safranbolu, which is full of examples of Turkish architecture of unrivaled beauty, the other city being Devek, famous for its intricately carved walking canes. Along thecoast you will come to the delightful recreational sites such as Inkum, Amasra and Cakraz. As you pass through Cide and Inebolu and approach Sinop, you might begin to wonder if there are still traces of the Amazons in the forests. As far as can be determined from mythological evidence the women warriors called Amazons lived in the region. The name of Sinop, one of the country's province, comes from a queen of the Amazons named Sinope. The birthplace of the philosopher Diyojen, this city, with its natural bays protected from the winds, is one of the Black Seas best holiday spots.
Nakhal Fort central building) with merlons typical of vernacular fort architecture . Each fortor castle is to have a As in other countries, guns used in warfare in Oman http://www.newsbriefsoman.info/features/nakhal_fort.htm
Extractions: Nakhal Fort: Embedded on top of large slabs of tawny yellow rock, the structure sits like a great architectural boulder carved into towers, windows and walls. Nakhal Fort lies at the foot of the north-western edge of the Hajar Mountains below the Jebel Akhdar. On hazy mornings the Jebel Akhdar appears misted and forms a spectacular dream-like backdrop, rising out of the bare desert plain like a mirage. As if painted in translucent layers, the mountains lose their substance and become flat shafts of quietly outlined silver, grey, and blue light. The forts at Bahla, Sohar and Rustaq might be older; some forts are larger or more beautiful, but Nakhal Fort has a special appeal of its own. Named after the nearby date palm groves, Nakhal Fort, sitting one hundred feet high on its rocky promontory, has a commanding view of all that surrounds it. Embedded on top of large slabs of tawny yellow rock, the structure sits like a great architectural boulder carved into towers, windows and walls. The fort is fully suited to its purpose and in perfect harmony with its environment. The interior is characterised by plain, balanced spaces, open stairways, arched recesses, a multitude of accessible rooms with windows shuttered by beautiful wooden carvings and ceilings of latticed palm matting supported by polished mangrove and palm timbers. From its early history until as late as 1980, the Fort was the residence of the Wali who held his barza, wherein he heard pleas, petitions or complaints; and, with his council, sat in judgement. And, in fact, though the Wali no longer lives in the fort, he does, to this day, hold his barza there once a month every winter season.

Japanese Catalogue - Nihon No Kokoro As part of the samurai culture, castles and castle architecture is discussed along whichdeveloped in Japan was different from that found in other countries. http://www.lm-media.com/j_nihon.html
Extractions: Bushido is the name given to the strict code of honour and duty which was developed between the samurai and their lords. This a difficult concept to understand because the price of honour is often death. This concept is illustrated by telling the tragic story of the 47 samurai of Ako who willingly took their own lives by seppuku - in honour to their fallen lord. This is a story beloved by Japanese people. As part of the samurai culture, castles and castle architecture is discussed along with the unique relationship between a lord and his samurai. Bushido has been called the soul of Japan. This code has been said to sum up the moral and religious qualities of the Japanese people. Bushido is manifest in the modern national ethic and moral values regarded by the Japanese people. Much of Japans group heritage is due to their orientation around the qualities of bushido and Japans early farming-based culture.
Extractions: Chapters in This Section I. Our arrival at Sana II. Our audience of the Imam III. Visit to Vizier Fakih Achmed IV. Of the city of Sana V. Of the country around Sana VI. VII. Our Audience of taking Leave VIII. Our Departure from Sana Chap. I. On the morning of the 16th of July we had sent our servant forward, with a letter, addressed to Fakih Achmed, Bir-el-Assab. We learned that the Vizier had likewise a villa there. When we arrived near this place, the secretary asked us to alight. We supposed upon this, that we were to be immediately introduced to the Vizier; but we only saw our secretary and our mussulman servants proceed on their asses, while we were obliged to march on foot, a long way, before we reached our lodging. This humiliating ceremony was what we had not expected to be subjected to among the Arabs, who value themselves upon their politeness. In our villa we found very good rooms, but those perfectly naked and unfurnished. We were here as ill accommodated as we had been in Yemen, and more so than we could have been in a caravansera, where we would at least have found food. Here we were obliged to fast till we could have victuals brought from the city. Beside our house, was an orchard, in which the trees appeared to have grown of themselves, without receiving any culture.
A Washington Must Embassies With Élan called neothis and made-up-that architecture. . From these castle-bastions, foreigndiplomats conduct what they above the din of other countries competing for http://msittig.freeshell.org/articles/NYT_Embassies.html
Extractions: ASHINGTON, Aug. 16 Everywhere you turn on Washington's fashionable Embassy Row, a new palace-size building is under construction, a testament to the frenzied competition of other nations to gain attention in the capital of the last remaining superpower. More than a dozen countries have built or are in the midst of building embassies the size of castles. They come adorned with faux towers and real waterfalls in what one diplomat called "neo-this and made-up-that architecture." From these castle-bastions, foreign diplomats conduct what they call the new Washington diplomacy, an explosion of events geared to reaching the broadest possible audience in hopes of being heard above the din of other countries competing for the same elusive prize of influence. One recent sticky summer evening, the Swedish ambassador welcomed his guests with chilled vodka and what he called the most important news of the year: Sweden had just received permission to build a new embassy here. "This is the most powerful country in the history of the world, and we need a showpiece for Sweden," said the ambassador, Jan Eliasson.
