bahadir,

Massive, massive. The pictures breathe of massiveness. The hundreds and hundreds of tons of stone (rock?) formed like this and photographed like this. Great

I noticed with interest the tilework and the arabic lettering on the post office. And I wondered, since the Latin Alphabet became used, it must be a chore for scholars to go back and read old original documents.

Is the Arabic system taught as well as the Latin one?

I particularly like your photo of the train station, BTW.Intriquing that two clocks are on each face of the building, as though necessary to keep a strict symmetry.
