How's the saying go, "familiarity breeds contempt"? No offence but I've seen this before or something similiar. Maybe my daleks have come back to haunt me again. See if Hans remembers me saying this before somewhere else.

Mali district?

Hans Dec 5 2010 04:16 AM

Re: Where in the World #279
 
Sorry Jube, I can't find a Mali district in Turkey. Can you rephrase your question?

jube Dec 5 2010 06:38 AM

Re: Where in the World #279
 
Mali, Djenne area then?

Hans Dec 5 2010 07:52 AM

Re: Where in the World #279
 
Ah...

Jube, the country of Mali and the city of Djenne are in Africa.

P'ter already established this is in Turkey in his first question.

I don't have a clue, but I do have a question, related something Han said.

Re: Where in the World #279
 
Slight bit of confusion then - no worries. Just remember seeing a similiar archectitual viewpoint and thought of it - at least G.Tresa knew what I meant ;)

Okay then.... east of line from Samsun to Gaziantep?

P'ter Dec 7 2010 05:51 AM

Re: Where in the World #279

GinnyStar Dec 8 2010 04:35 PM

Re: Where in the World #279

Re: Where in the World #279
 
Hmmm, maybe a hint is in order.

It is on the south coast of Turkey.

jube Dec 16 2010 03:31 PM

Re: Where in the World #279
 
Between Antalya and Mersin?

Hans Dec 16 2010 04:07 PM

Re: Where in the World #279
 
Yes Jube.

Hans Dec 23 2010 05:09 AM

Re: Where in the World #279
 
If there is no more activity I'll give the answer on Friday.

Maybe we should give this game a general rest for a while.

spacedog Dec 29 2010 02:48 AM

Re: Where in the World #279
 
My question ... is it a fortress?

Jube forgot to ask if it was a temple? (She's getting the spuds organised).

Hans Dec 29 2010 07:04 AM

Re: Where in the World #279
 
Spacedog, no to your and Jube's suggestion.

I forgot my own promise to end this...

It is the OXYD discotheque in Side on the Turkish south coast, not far from Antalya. (Side , pronounce; see-duh) The club/disco is the largest and best in that town.
The peculiar building style that Jube recognised is often seen in places where people build with clay / adobe. I have seen it in Africa, Near Asia and southwest United States.

Have / hope you had a nice meal! :good:
