History[ edit ] The upper sword appears to be an exaggerated parade piece or executioner’s sword, the second down is typical of a later kilij, the third has the characteristics of an earlier kilij and the lowest one possibly has a later European-style blade. The kilij became the symbol of power and kingdom. Origins[ edit ] The Central Asian Turks and their offshoots begun using curved cavalry swords beginning from the late Xiongnu period. A sharp back edge on the distal third of the blade known as “yalman” or “yelman” was introduced during this period. Vienna, Treasury of the German Order.

From the Hook of Holland to Istanbul in the footsteps of Patrick Leigh Fermor.
We started really well and did a very good job, offensively and defensively, in the first quarter, especially in the first six minutes. But finally, at the end of the first quarter, we only had a six-point difference. We had foul problems in the second quarter, when Bojan Dubljevic and Tibor Pleiss had three each. It was a very difficult moment for the team but we kept the score tied and it was a good result for us at the end of the second quarter.
Our third quarter was amazing, it was the key of the game. We got a lead of nearly 20 points and killed the game in the third quarter. We made mistakes at the beginning of the fourth quarter and they came back a bit, but finally we kept a safe lead and are very happy for this first win in this new EuroLeague. We managed to play our defense with a good level of intensity. We played a good first and third quarter, and then the second and fourth quarters invite us to work even harder.
That is the main consequence to the game, added to the fact that the team was able to react against the adversity. We were without Latavious Williams, and having Tibor and ‘Dubi’ with three fouls each with six minutes left in the second quarter happened to be a critical moment. We managed to reach halftime with the game tied, minimizing the damage, to have a great start after halftime and break the game open.

Istanbul, Turkey Lumiere November 4, at 8: Reply Sid November 6, at 9: I booked it before they got me, but even Turks agree that the place can get sketchy outside of Sultanahmet. Ultimately, the Muslim atmosphere renders the place too prudish to be worth it just for flagging. Reply Buck Dangler November 7, at 4: I feel so special!

Saturday, March 8, Getting Lost in Istanbul As the title states, I spent most of the day getting completely turned around. Istanbul is a maze of tiny cobble stone side streets. I got up around 8 and headed to the hostel breakfast. I met a guy from England who was finishing up his trip to Turkey. His favorite place was Cappadocia, which I was glad to hear. At 9, I headed for my first stop – the Aya Sofia.
I bought a museumkart for 85 tl which allows me access to most monuments and museums for a 36 hour period. I also bought an audio guide to listen to as I walked around. It has a very rich history and beautiful architecture. They take security very seriously. I’ve also decided that Istanbul wins the contest for prettiest ceilings. The line was about 40 min to get in which kind of sucked but today was the only day is open while I’m here.
The main drawbacks have been not having someone to take your pictures and waiting in line sandwiched between groups who don’t speak English because you get bored. Definitely worth the wait.

I like to wake up early and go to bed early. My partying days are well and truly behind me. However when visiting one of the greatest cities of the world i. Istanbul — I decided to try the night-life. The bustling Istiklal Avenue is one area staying busy until the early hours of the morning so that is where I headed, along with two female friends.
This is where scantily dressed women take all your money by charging over the odds for a beer and plate of peanuts, while wiggling their bottom in your face. They quite possibly offer extra services as well! Warning — the normal bars in Taksim are very good and I was out of action for the whole of the next day, so do not go partying if you plan on sight seeing the day after! Istiklal Avenue is 3km long so do not search for these bars at the Karakoy ending otherwise; you will end up very thirsty!

I had never heard of such games until I came to the US. I have not been living in Istanbul for a while now, though I still do my annual visit to parents and such, but I seriously doubt that they have these games. The major problem being language. Unless some of these games were published in Turkish, which I, again, doubt. There are also nice chess sets. DO NOT shop from the covered bazaar kapali carsi. You will be a tourist and you will most likely get ripped off.
I would ask a Turk not me. I did ask my dad to investigate for me and he has some friends in Eskisehir where a lot of these hand crafted items are actualy made BUT no word yet. I was mainly asking for a price comparison since the mother of pearl backgammon sets in the US imported from Turkey cost an arm and a leg! Another funny thing is people like my dad associate games like backgammon tavla and rummikub okey with gambling and with certain male-oriented establishements called kahve, as in coffee[house] where men IDLE men, in my dad’s opinion go, hang out, drink lots of coffee, tea, beer, and play poker, rummikub, tavla So if you ask about a backgammon set to someone you are doing business with, explain yourself well.
