A Cretan Odyssey – A Rich and Colourful Tapestry of Influences!
arabic music
Image by antonychammond
Cretan Folk Art is a fine example of how such creative arts are deeply embedded in the culture, heart and soul of Greece and her islands. None epitomises this culture of creativity more than the Greek Island of Crete.

A rich tapestry of influences drawing threads from the Minoan civilization, the Roman and Byzantine Empires, the Venetians and the Turks have been interwoven into the existing wealth of creative expertise passed down from ancient times.

Cretan embroidery is noted for its exquisite variety of colour, symbolism and varying techniques. The most notable classic techniques of Cretan embroidery are grafta, which involves patterns drawn freehand onto the fabric, and Metrita-xombliasta, made by counting the threads in the fabric. Both these techniques and others are employed to create exquisite embroidered pieces.

Many embroidered pieces such as church decorations, pillows, valances and hems, are drawn from the Byzantine tradition. They feature decorative motifs with complex floral designs, mermaids, double-headed eagles, snakes, winged snakes, animals, birds of Crete, and female figures at prayer. Many 20th century framed embroideries or decorations feature proverbs or figures drawn from history or the mythology of ancient Crete.

This particular example is to be found at the Historical Museum of Crete which is absolutelty fascinating and well worth a visit!

The Historical Museum of Crete was founded by the Society of Cretan Historical Studies in 1953 and is housed in a neoclassical building of significant architectural merit (the A. & M. Kalokairinos House, 1903) in the city of Heraklion on Crete, an island of Greece. The museum was expanded following the addition of a new wing and floor.

The museum’s permanent collections highlight the art and history of Crete from the 4th century AD up to and including the Second World War. The collections are ordered chronologically and by subject matter, and are combined with visual material and multimedia. They include ceramics, sculptures, coins, jewellery, wall paintings, portable icons, ritual objects, manuscripts, heirlooms, weavings, the reconstructed interior of a Cretan rural home and much more.

The museum’s finest exhibits are two paintings by Doménikos Theotokópoulos (more commonly known as El Greco), born in Crete: The Baptism of Christ (1567) and View of Mount Sinai (1570–2), the only works by the artist now on Crete. Another outstanding exhibit is a 4×4 metre mock-up of mid-17th century Chandax (Heraklion), at the time when the city reached its peak under Venetian rule. Of particular interest is the Nikos Kazantzakis Collection, featuring the study and library from the author’s home in Antibes, France, personal effects, manuscripts of his works, first editions of books in various languages, etc.

The temporary exhibition rooms at the Historical Museum of Crete host exhibitions on a wide range of themes (e.g., in summer 2012, the life and work of poet Odysseas Elytis).

The museum library, featuring rare editions and much archive and photographic material, caters for the needs of both researchers and the general public.

Crete (Greek: ?????, Kríti [‘kriti]; Ancient Greek: ?????, Kr?t?) is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the thirteen administrative regions of Greece.The capital and the largest city of Crete is Heraklion. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own poetry, and music). Crete was once the center of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC), which is currently regarded as the earliest recorded civilization in Europe.

The island is first referred to as Kaptara in texts from the Syrian city of Mari dating from the 18th century BC, repeated later in Neo-Assyrian records and the Bible (Caphtor). It was also known in ancient Egyptian as Keftiu, strongly suggesting some form similar to both was the Minoan name for the island.

The current name of Crete is thought to be first attested in Mycenaean Greek texts written in Linear B, through the words ke-re-te (*Kr?tes; later Greek: ??????, plural of ????),[4] and ke-re-si-jo (*Kr?sijos; later Greek: ???????), "Cretan". In Ancient Greek, the name Crete (?????) first appears in Homer’s Odyssey.[8] Its etymology is unknown. One speculative proposal derives it from a hypothetical Luvian word *kursatta (cf. kursawar "island", kursattar "cutting, sliver").[9] In Latin, it became Creta.

The original Arabic name of Crete was Iqr??iš (Arabic: ??????? < (???) ??????), but after the Emirate of Crete’s establishment of its new capital at ??? ??????Rab? al-?andaq (modern Iraklion), both the city and the island became known as ?????? (Khandhax) or ???????? (Khandhakas), which gave Latin and Venetian Candia, from which French Candie and English Candy or Candia. Under Ottoman rule, in Ottoman Turkish, Crete was called Girit (????).

Diwaniyah breathes life to the desert

AL-JAHRA, Kuwait – Soldiers deployed to the Middle East in support of Operation Enduring Freedom got a taste of Kuwaiti culture when they participated in a Diwaniyah, a social event that combines elements of a town hall meeting, a formal dinner banquet and a night club soiree.

A majority of the 17 troops that boarded a bus on that brisk Jan. 12 afternoon did not know what to expect beyond the fact that their hosts awaited them at their mukhayyam, a collection of tents situated outside the city limits of Al-Jahra, Kuwait. After a 90-minute drive along the desert landscape, the Soldiers stepped off their cramped coach and onto the courtyard of a lavishly decorated khaima tent complete with an archway entrance, a lighted pathway, a bubbling fountain and a grass lawn.

After making formal introductions the Soldiers took off their shoes and sat on the khaima tent’s carpeted floor lined with cushions and pillows. Their hosts soon served tea and hors d’oeuvres while discussing current events. Although typically a male only congregation, the Kuwaitis broke tradition by welcoming the female Soldiers into the conversation.

The discussion gave way to a melody when Abdullah Al Omir, a well known musician among the local populace, picked up a lute—the predecessor to the guitar—and played “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Omir then handed the instrument to the Soldiers, some of whom played a few chords.

Later in the evening more musicians set up their lutes, drums, keyboards and violins and played popular Arabic songs. The catchy tunes inspired Americans and Kuwaitis alike to dance the night away.

Between songs and dances the attendees were drawn to a nearby khaima tent enveloped in the mouth-watering smells of an Arabic dinner buffet. There the guests dined on rice, soup, lamb, fish, chicken, salad and an assortment of desserts.

At 11 p.m. the Soldiers said farewell to their Kuwaiti hosts with both parties promising that they will meet again under similar circumstances.

The trip was made possible in part by the 143d ESC’s civil affairs section.

“That was the real thing,” said Sgt. 1st Class Cesar E.Rivera, the 143d ESC’s G-9 noncommissioned officer-in-charge, as he reflected on the night’s events. “By participating in these kinds of engagements, we have a unique opportunity to gain a better understanding of the local Kuwaiti culture while learning more about Islamic customs.”

Image by SuperCar-RoadTrip.fr
Alhama de Granada is a town in the province of Granada, approx. 50 km from the city of Granada. The name is derived from the thermal baths located there, which are called al-hammah ?????????? in Arabic.
In 1482, the fortress town was taken from the Moorish Sultanate and Kingdom of Granada by the Catholic Monarchs.
Alhama’s position between Málaga and Granada gave it strategic importance for the Moors but they also had a particular fondness for the town and its thermal waters. The cry of sorrow, ¡Ay de mi Alhama!, uttered by Abu Al-Hacen following the battle of 1482 when the town was lost to the Catholic conquerors, entered the Spanish language as an exclamation of regret.
At a convenient distance from the town centre, nestling in a poplar grove lining down the banks of the river (also known as Merchan), you will find a hot springs. Prehistoric remains found in the neighbourhood show the antiquity of the human settlements.
There is also clear evidence of the way Romans used the waters. In the 15th century, the Arabs consolidated the town next to these hot springs and it was believed that they built the thermal baths there, but the real origin of those baths is Roman as is proved in the book by Salvador Raya Retamero, a local historian, in his book "Reseña histórica de los baños termales de la muy noble y leal ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (Brief history of the hot springs of the most noble and loyal city of Alhama de Granada). A short interview with the author explains the details. The strategic influence of Alhama de Granada made the fall, in 1492, of the Arab empire vital for the conquest of the Kingdom of Granada, which led to the beginning of a flourishing age, because of the patronage of the Catholic Monarchs. The bath house in the Almohade style of the 12th century that is preserved in the SPA is a good example of Arab baths’ construction.
The magnificent horse shoe arcs were built over the remains of Roman construction and are covered by a vaulted roof, pierced by star-shaped openings that let the daylight filter in. Under the vaulted roof of the baths the oldest warm spring of Alhama de Granada bubbles up. The newest one, which springs up a few metres from the other, was discovered in 1884, many centuries after a terrible earthquake whose epicentre could have been very near the area.
Alhama looks out over some of Spain’s most spectacular scenery. In winter, the view to the majestic snow-capped Sierra Nevada is uninterrupted. Close by is the vast and beautiful Bermejales lake, 12 km from town and reached by a road lined with poplars and Mediterranean black pines. There are sandy beaches, safe swimming and plenty of non-motorised water sports. There are also a couple of cafes at the edge of the lake. Many of the local population spend evenings and weekends barbecuing at the water’s edge; it is a great location.
There are many quaint bars in Alhama which serve "cafés" and "tostadas" in the morning, lunch in the late afternoon, and tapas in the evening. Casa Ochoa Tertulia Bar and Cafe Bar El Tigre are local favorites. For nightlife, El Encuentro plays more contemporary pop and reggae music, while Por Amor Al Arte has live flamenco on the weekends.

Alhama de Granada ist eine Stadt in der Provinz Granada, ca.. 50 km von der Stadt Granada. Der Name wird von den Thermalbädern dort befinden, die auf Arabisch genannt werden al-Hammah ????? abgeleitet.
Im Jahre 1482 wurde die Festungsstadt aus dem maurischen Sultanats und Königreich Granada durch die Katholischen Könige gemacht.
Alhama Position zwischen Málaga und Granada gab es von strategischer Bedeutung für die Mauren, sondern sie hatten auch eine besondere Vorliebe für die Stadt und seine Thermalquellen. Der Schrei der Trauer, ¡Ay de mi Alhama !, von Abu Al-Hacen nach der Schlacht von 1482, als die Stadt den katholischen Eroberer verloren geäußert, in die spanische Sprache als Ausruf des Bedauerns.
In einem bequemen Abstand vom Stadtzentrum entfernt, eingebettet in einem Pappelhain Futter nach unten am Ufer des Flusses (auch als Merchan bekannt), werden Sie eine heiße Quellen zu finden. Prähistorische Funde in der Nachbarschaft gefunden zeigen die Antike der menschlichen Siedlungen.
Es gibt auch eindeutige Beweise für die Art und Weise Römer verwendeten das Wasser. Im 15. Jahrhundert festigte die Araber die Stadt neben diesen heißen Quellen und man glaubte, dass sie gebaut die Thermalbäder gibt es, aber die wirkliche Herkunft der Bäder ist Roman, wie in dem Buch von Salvador Raya Retamero, ein lokaler Historiker nachgewiesen wird, , in seinem Buch "Reseña histórica de los Baños de la termales muy noble y Leal Ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (Kurze Geschichte der heißen Quellen des edelsten und loyale Stadt Alhama de Granada). Ein kurzes Interview mit dem Autor erklärt die Details. Der strategische Einfluss der Alhama de Granada der Fall, im Jahr 1492, von der arabischen Reiches entscheidend für die Eroberung des Königreichs Granada, die an den Anfang einer blühenden Alter geführt, weil der Schirmherrschaft der Katholischen Könige. Das Badehaus in der Almohaden-Stil des 12. Jahrhunderts, die in der SPA erhalten wird, ist ein gutes Beispiel für die arabischen Bäder-Konstruktion ausgestattet.
Die herrlichen Hufeisenbögen wurden auf den Überresten der römischen Bau Unter dem gewölbten Dach der Bäder der älteste warmen Frühlings Alhama de Granada Blasen gebaut und werden von einem gewölbten Dach, durch sternförmige Öffnungen, die den Tageslichtfilter in lassen bohrt bedeckt. auf. Der neueste, die ein paar Meter von der anderen entspringt, wurde 1884 entdeckt, viele Jahrhunderte nach einem schrecklichen Erdbeben, dessen Epizentrum könnte sehr in der Nähe der Gegend gewesen sein.
Alhama blickt auf einige von Spaniens schönsten Landschaften. Im Winter ist der Blick auf die majestätischen, schneebedeckten Sierra Nevada unterbrochen. In der Nähe ist die große und schöne Bermejales See, 12 km von der Stadt und von einer Straße mit Pappeln und Kiefern gesäumt schwarz Mittelmeer erreicht. Es gibt Sandstrände, sicheres Schwimmen und viele nicht-motorisierte Wassersportarten . Es gibt auch ein paar Cafés am Rand des Sees. Viele der lokalen Bevölkerung zu verbringen abends und am Wochenende Grillen am Rand des Wassers; es ist eine tolle Lage.
Es gibt viele hübsche Bars in Alhama, die "Cafés" und "tostadas" am Morgen, Mittagessen am späten Nachmittag zu dienen, und Tapas am Abend.

A una distancia conveniente del centro de la ciudad, enclavado en una guarnición alameda por las orillas del río (también conocido como Merchan), encontrará unas aguas termales. Restos prehistóricos hallados en el barrio demuestran la antigüedad de los asentamientos humanos.
También hay evidencia clara de la forma romanos utilizaron las aguas. En el siglo 15, los árabes consolidaron la ciudad al lado de estas aguas termales y se creía que construyeron los baños termales allí, pero el verdadero origen de los baños es romano como se demuestra en el libro de Salvador Raya Retamero, un historiador local , en su libro "Reseña Histórica de los baños termales de la Muy noble y leal ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (Breve historia de las aguas termales de la ciudad más noble y leal de Alhama de Granada).

Los magníficos arcos de herradura fueron construidas sobre los restos de construcción romana y están cubiertos por un techo abovedado, traspasado por aberturas en forma de estrella que permiten el filtro de la luz del día.

Muy cerca se encuentra el lago vasto y hermoso Bermejales, a 12 km de la ciudad y se llega por una carretera bordeada de álamos y pinos negros mediterráneos.

Alhama de Granada est une ville dans la province de Grenade, env. 50 km de la ville de Grenade. Le nom est dérivé des thermes qui s’y trouvent, qui sont appelés al-Hammah ????? en arabe.
En 1482, la ville forteresse a été prise à partir de la mauresque Sultanat et le royaume de Grenade par les Rois Catholiques.
La position de Alhama, entre Malaga et Grenade, il a donné une importance stratégique pour les Maures, mais ils ont également eu une tendresse particulière pour la ville et ses eaux thermales. Le cri de douleur, ¡Ay de mi Alhama !, prononcé par Abu Al-Hacen la suite de la bataille de 1482, lorsque la ville a été perdue pour les conquérants catholiques, est entré dans la langue espagnole comme un cri de regret.
À une distance convenable du centre-ville, nichée dans un bosquet de peupliers doublure bas les rives de la rivière (également connu sous le nom Merchan), vous trouverez une source chaude. Vestiges préhistoriques trouvés dans le quartier montrent l’ancienneté des établissements humains.
Il est également évident de la façon dont les Romains utilisaient les eaux. Au 15ème siècle, les Arabes consolidé la ville à côté de ces sources d’eau chaude et on a cru que ils ont construit des thermes là, mais l’origine réelle de ces bains est romaine comme le prouve dans le livre de Salvador Raya Retamero, un historien local , dans son livre "Reseña histórica de los baños termales de la muy noble y leal ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (Brève histoire des sources chaudes de la ville la plus noble et fidèle de Alhama de Granada). Une courte entrevue avec l’auteur explique les détails. L’influence stratégique de Alhama de Granada fait la chute, en 1492, de l’empire arabe vital pour la conquête du royaume de Grenade, qui a conduit au début d’un âge florissant, en raison de la patronage des Rois Catholiques. La maison de bain dans le style Almohade du 12ème siècle qui est conservée dans le SPA est un bon exemple de la construction de bains arabes.
Les magnifiques arcs de fer à cheval ont été construits sur les restes de la construction romaine et sont couverts par une voûte, percé par des ouvertures en forme d’étoile qui permettent le filtre de la lumière du jour dans. Dans la voûte de bains la plus ancienne source d’eau chaude de bulles Alhama de Granada up. Le plus récent d’une, qui jaillit à quelques mètres de l’autre, a été découvert en 1884, bien des siècles après un terrible tremblement de terre dont l’épicentre aurait pu être très près de la zone.
Alhama donne sur quelques-uns des paysages les plus spectaculaires de l’Espagne. En hiver, la vue sur le majestueux sommets enneigés de la Sierra Nevada est ininterrompue. Tout près se trouve le lac vaste et beau Bermejales, à 12 km de la ville et accessible par une route bordée de peupliers et de pins noirs méditerranéens. Il ya des plages de sable fin, baignade en toute sécurité et de nombreux sports nautiques non motorisés. Il ya aussi un couple de cafés au bord du lac. Beaucoup de la population locale de passer des soirées et des week-ends de barbecue au bord de l’eau; il est très bien situé.

Alhama de Granada è una città nella provincia di Granada, ca. 50 km dalla città di Granada. Il nome deriva dai bagni termali situati lì, che sono chiamati al-Hammah ????? in arabo.
Nel 1482, la città fortezza è stata presa dal moresco Sultanato e Regno di Granada da parte dei Re Cattolici.
La posizione di Alhama tra Malaga e Granada diede importanza strategica per i Mori, ma avevano anche una particolare predilezione per la città e le sue acque termali. Il grido di dolore, ¡Ay de mi Alhama !, pronunciata da Abu Al-Hacen dopo la battaglia del 1482 quando la città è stata persa ai conquistatori cattolici, entrato nella lingua spagnola come esclamazione di rammarico.
A una comoda distanza dal centro della città, immerso in un boschetto di pioppo fodera le rive del fiume (noto anche come Merchan), troverete un caldo molle. Reperti preistorici rinvenuti nel quartiere mostrano l’antichità degli insediamenti umani.
Vi è anche una chiara evidenza del modo in Romani usavano le acque. Nel 15 ° secolo, gli arabi consolidato della città, accanto a queste sorgenti di acqua calda e si credeva che costruirono le terme lì, ma la vera origine di questi bagni è romana come è dimostrato nel libro di Salvador Raya Retamero, uno storico locale , nel suo libro "Reseña Historica de los Baños termali de la muy nobile y leal ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (breve storia delle sorgenti calde della città più nobile e leale di Alhama de Granada). Una breve intervista con l’autore spiega i dettagli. L’influenza strategica di Alhama de Granada ha fatto la caduta, nel 1492, l’impero arabo vitale per la conquista del Regno di Granada, che ha portato l’inizio di un’epoca fiorente, a causa del patronato dei Re Cattolici. Il bagno di casa in stile almohade del 12 ° secolo che si conserva nella SPA è un buon esempio di costruzione bagni arabi.
I magnifici archi a ferro di cavallo sono state costruite sui resti di costruzione romana e sono coperti da un tetto a volta, trafitto da aperture a forma di stella che consentono il filtro per luce diurna in. Sotto il tetto a volta delle terme più antiche calda primavera di bolle di Alhama de Granada up.

Alhama de Granada is a town in the province of Granada, approx. 50 km from the city of Granada. The name is derived from the thermal baths located there, which are called al-hammah ?????????? in Arabic.
In 1482, the fortress town was taken from the Moorish Sultanate and Kingdom of Granada by the Catholic Monarchs.
Alhama’s position between Málaga and Granada gave it strategic importance for the Moors but they also had a particular fondness for the town and its thermal waters. The cry of sorrow, ¡Ay de mi Alhama!, uttered by Abu Al-Hacen following the battle of 1482 when the town was lost to the Catholic conquerors, entered the Spanish language as an exclamation of regret.
At a convenient distance from the town centre, nestling in a poplar grove lining down the banks of the river (also known as Merchan), you will find a hot springs. Prehistoric remains found in the neighbourhood show the antiquity of the human settlements.
There is also clear evidence of the way Romans used the waters. In the 15th century, the Arabs consolidated the town next to these hot springs and it was believed that they built the thermal baths there, but the real origin of those baths is Roman as is proved in the book by Salvador Raya Retamero, a local historian, in his book "Reseña histórica de los baños termales de la muy noble y leal ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (Brief history of the hot springs of the most noble and loyal city of Alhama de Granada). A short interview with the author explains the details. The strategic influence of Alhama de Granada made the fall, in 1492, of the Arab empire vital for the conquest of the Kingdom of Granada, which led to the beginning of a flourishing age, because of the patronage of the Catholic Monarchs. The bath house in the Almohade style of the 12th century that is preserved in the SPA is a good example of Arab baths’ construction.
The magnificent horse shoe arcs were built over the remains of Roman construction and are covered by a vaulted roof, pierced by star-shaped openings that let the daylight filter in. Under the vaulted roof of the baths the oldest warm spring of Alhama de Granada bubbles up. The newest one, which springs up a few metres from the other, was discovered in 1884, many centuries after a terrible earthquake whose epicentre could have been very near the area.
Alhama looks out over some of Spain’s most spectacular scenery. In winter, the view to the majestic snow-capped Sierra Nevada is uninterrupted. Close by is the vast and beautiful Bermejales lake, 12 km from town and reached by a road lined with poplars and Mediterranean black pines. There are sandy beaches, safe swimming and plenty of non-motorised water sports. There are also a couple of cafes at the edge of the lake. Many of the local population spend evenings and weekends barbecuing at the water’s edge; it is a great location.
There are many quaint bars in Alhama which serve "cafés" and "tostadas" in the morning, lunch in the late afternoon, and tapas in the evening. Casa Ochoa Tertulia Bar and Cafe Bar El Tigre are local favorites. For nightlife, El Encuentro plays more contemporary pop and reggae music, while Por Amor Al Arte has live flamenco on the weekends.

Alhama de Granada ist eine Stadt in der Provinz Granada, ca.. 50 km von der Stadt Granada. Der Name wird von den Thermalbädern dort befinden, die auf Arabisch genannt werden al-Hammah ????? abgeleitet.
Im Jahre 1482 wurde die Festungsstadt aus dem maurischen Sultanats und Königreich Granada durch die Katholischen Könige gemacht.
Alhama Position zwischen Málaga und Granada gab es von strategischer Bedeutung für die Mauren, sondern sie hatten auch eine besondere Vorliebe für die Stadt und seine Thermalquellen. Der Schrei der Trauer, ¡Ay de mi Alhama !, von Abu Al-Hacen nach der Schlacht von 1482, als die Stadt den katholischen Eroberer verloren geäußert, in die spanische Sprache als Ausruf des Bedauerns.
In einem bequemen Abstand vom Stadtzentrum entfernt, eingebettet in einem Pappelhain Futter nach unten am Ufer des Flusses (auch als Merchan bekannt), werden Sie eine heiße Quellen zu finden. Prähistorische Funde in der Nachbarschaft gefunden zeigen die Antike der menschlichen Siedlungen.
Es gibt auch eindeutige Beweise für die Art und Weise Römer verwendeten das Wasser. Im 15. Jahrhundert festigte die Araber die Stadt neben diesen heißen Quellen und man glaubte, dass sie gebaut die Thermalbäder gibt es, aber die wirkliche Herkunft der Bäder ist Roman, wie in dem Buch von Salvador Raya Retamero, ein lokaler Historiker nachgewiesen wird, , in seinem Buch "Reseña histórica de los Baños de la termales muy noble y Leal Ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (Kurze Geschichte der heißen Quellen des edelsten und loyale Stadt Alhama de Granada). Ein kurzes Interview mit dem Autor erklärt die Details. Der strategische Einfluss der Alhama de Granada der Fall, im Jahr 1492, von der arabischen Reiches entscheidend für die Eroberung des Königreichs Granada, die an den Anfang einer blühenden Alter geführt, weil der Schirmherrschaft der Katholischen Könige. Das Badehaus in der Almohaden-Stil des 12. Jahrhunderts, die in der SPA erhalten wird, ist ein gutes Beispiel für die arabischen Bäder-Konstruktion ausgestattet.
Die herrlichen Hufeisenbögen wurden auf den Überresten der römischen Bau Unter dem gewölbten Dach der Bäder der älteste warmen Frühlings Alhama de Granada Blasen gebaut und werden von einem gewölbten Dach, durch sternförmige Öffnungen, die den Tageslichtfilter in lassen bohrt bedeckt. auf. Der neueste, die ein paar Meter von der anderen entspringt, wurde 1884 entdeckt, viele Jahrhunderte nach einem schrecklichen Erdbeben, dessen Epizentrum könnte sehr in der Nähe der Gegend gewesen sein.
Alhama blickt auf einige von Spaniens schönsten Landschaften. Im Winter ist der Blick auf die majestätischen, schneebedeckten Sierra Nevada unterbrochen. In der Nähe ist die große und schöne Bermejales See, 12 km von der Stadt und von einer Straße mit Pappeln und Kiefern gesäumt schwarz Mittelmeer erreicht. Es gibt Sandstrände, sicheres Schwimmen und viele nicht-motorisierte Wassersportarten . Es gibt auch ein paar Cafés am Rand des Sees.

El grito de dolor, ¡Ay de mi Alhama !, pronunciada por Abu Al-Hacen después de la batalla de 1482, cuando la ciudad se perdió a los conquistadores católicos, entró en la lengua española como una exclamación de pesar.
A una distancia conveniente del centro de la ciudad, enclavado en una guarnición alameda por las orillas del río (también conocido como Merchan), encontrará unas aguas termales. Restos prehistóricos hallados en el barrio demuestran la antigüedad de los asentamientos humanos.
También hay evidencia clara de la forma romanos utilizaron las aguas. En el siglo 15, los árabes consolidaron la ciudad al lado de estas aguas termales y se creía que construyeron los baños termales allí, pero el verdadero origen de los baños es romano como se demuestra en el libro de Salvador Raya Retamero, un historiador local , en su libro "Reseña Histórica de los baños termales de la Muy noble y leal ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (Breve historia de las aguas termales de la ciudad más noble y leal de Alhama de Granada).

El baño de la casa en el estilo almohade del siglo 12 que se conserva en el SPA es un buen ejemplo de la construcción de los baños árabes.
Los magníficos arcos de herradura fueron construidas sobre los restos de construcción romana y están cubiertos por un techo abovedado, traspasado por aberturas en forma de estrella que permiten el filtro de la luz del día. Bajo el techo abovedado de los baños de la cálida primavera más antigua de burbujas en Alhama de Granada hacia arriba.

Muy cerca se encuentra el lago vasto y hermoso Bermejales, a 12 km de la ciudad y se llega por una carretera bordeada de álamos y pinos negros mediterráneos.

Alhama de Granada est une ville dans la province de Grenade, env. 50 km de la ville de Grenade. Le nom est dérivé des thermes qui s’y trouvent, qui sont appelés al-Hammah ????? en arabe.
En 1482, la ville forteresse a été prise à partir de la mauresque Sultanat et le royaume de Grenade par les Rois Catholiques.
La position de Alhama, entre Malaga et Grenade, il a donné une importance stratégique pour les Maures, mais ils ont également eu une tendresse particulière pour la ville et ses eaux thermales. Le cri de douleur, ¡Ay de mi Alhama !, prononcé par Abu Al-Hacen la suite de la bataille de 1482, lorsque la ville a été perdue pour les conquérants catholiques, est entré dans la langue espagnole comme un cri de regret.
À une distance convenable du centre-ville, nichée dans un bosquet de peupliers doublure bas les rives de la rivière (également connu sous le nom Merchan), vous trouverez une source chaude. Vestiges préhistoriques trouvés dans le quartier montrent l’ancienneté des établissements humains.
Il est également évident de la façon dont les Romains utilisaient les eaux. Au 15ème siècle, les Arabes consolidé la ville à côté de ces sources d’eau chaude et on a cru que ils ont construit des thermes là, mais l’origine réelle de ces bains est romaine comme le prouve dans le livre de Salvador Raya Retamero, un historien local , dans son livre "Reseña histórica de los baños termales de la muy noble y leal ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (Brève histoire des sources chaudes de la ville la plus noble et fidèle de Alhama de Granada). Une courte entrevue avec l’auteur explique les détails. L’influence stratégique de Alhama de Granada fait la chute, en 1492, de l’empire arabe vital pour la conquête du royaume de Grenade, qui a conduit au début d’un âge florissant, en raison de la patronage des Rois Catholiques. La maison de bain dans le style Almohade du 12ème siècle qui est conservée dans le SPA est un bon exemple de la construction de bains arabes.
Les magnifiques arcs de fer à cheval ont été construits sur les restes de la construction romaine et sont couverts par une voûte, percé par des ouvertures en forme d’étoile qui permettent le filtre de la lumière du jour dans. Dans la voûte de bains la plus ancienne source d’eau chaude de bulles Alhama de Granada up. Le plus récent d’une, qui jaillit à quelques mètres de l’autre, a été découvert en 1884, bien des siècles après un terrible tremblement de terre dont l’épicentre aurait pu être très près de la zone.
Alhama donne sur quelques-uns des paysages les plus spectaculaires de l’Espagne. En hiver, la vue sur le majestueux sommets enneigés de la Sierra Nevada est ininterrompue. Tout près se trouve le lac vaste et beau Bermejales, à 12 km de la ville et accessible par une route bordée de peupliers et de pins noirs méditerranéens. Il ya des plages de sable fin, baignade en toute sécurité et de nombreux sports nautiques non motorisés. Il ya aussi un couple de cafés au bord du lac.

Alhama de Granada è una città nella provincia di Granada, ca. 50 km dalla città di Granada. Il nome deriva dai bagni termali situati lì, che sono chiamati al-Hammah ????? in arabo.
Nel 1482, la città fortezza è stata presa dal moresco Sultanato e Regno di Granada da parte dei Re Cattolici.
La posizione di Alhama tra Malaga e Granada diede importanza strategica per i Mori, ma avevano anche una particolare predilezione per la città e le sue acque termali. Il grido di dolore, ¡Ay de mi Alhama !, pronunciata da Abu Al-Hacen dopo la battaglia del 1482 quando la città è stata persa ai conquistatori cattolici, entrato nella lingua spagnola come esclamazione di rammarico.
A una comoda distanza dal centro della città, immerso in un boschetto di pioppo fodera le rive del fiume (noto anche come Merchan), troverete un caldo molle. Reperti preistorici rinvenuti nel quartiere mostrano l’antichità degli insediamenti umani.
Vi è anche una chiara evidenza del modo in Romani usavano le acque. Nel 15 ° secolo, gli arabi consolidato della città, accanto a queste sorgenti di acqua calda e si credeva che costruirono le terme lì, ma la vera origine di questi bagni è romana come è dimostrato nel libro di Salvador Raya Retamero, uno storico locale , nel suo libro "Reseña Historica de los Baños termali de la muy nobile y leal ciudad de Alhama de Granada" (breve storia delle sorgenti calde della città più nobile e leale di Alhama de Granada). Una breve intervista con l’autore spiega i dettagli. L’influenza strategica di Alhama de Granada ha fatto la caduta, nel 1492, l’impero arabo vitale per la conquista del Regno di Granada, che ha portato l’inizio di un’epoca fiorente, a causa del patronato dei Re Cattolici. Il bagno di casa in stile almohade del 12 ° secolo che si conserva nella SPA è un buon esempio di costruzione bagni arabi.
I magnifici archi a ferro di cavallo sono state costruite sui resti di costruzione romana e sono coperti da un tetto a volta, trafitto da aperture a forma di stella che consentono il filtro per luce diurna in. Sotto il tetto a volta delle terme più antiche calda primavera di bolle di Alhama de Granada up.

Islamic Violins (Together With Video n Sound Installation at Kochi Muziris Biennele- March 2013)
arabic music
Image by -Reji
Islamic Violins (Ibrahim Quraishi, Nairobi, Kenya. Lives and works in Amsterdam, Netherlands)

(30 perfected violins, video and sound installation.)

Islamic Violins is a homage to the Fluxus movement, which developed an anti-establishment, anti-commercial approach to art in the 1960s, by staging intuitive ‘aktion’ works, performances, low-budget do-it-yourself art editions and other events, intending to free art from the boundaries of the institutions and the market.

Islamic Violins is inspired by Persian, Arabic, Urdu and Turkish poetry’s attempt to address the ideal of the beloved in its most untouched, perfected form. The violin, whose origins lie in Central Asia, here stands for the ideal body and spirit; in its perfectly symmetrical repetition it brings about meditative serenity and a sepulchral, timeless beauty.

The grainy mini-video and saturated surround sound stand in absolute contrast with this ideal image. The ‘low-tech’ explosion of violins
and the survey of the debris created by the onslaught have the ugly noisiness of media, interfering with the contemplation of beauty.

These violins were bought in Pakistan, and made their way through the Netherlands, were they were sculpturally perfecteby the artist, back to Kochi; thus summarizing in their short history the long convoluted and dramatic history of the instrument

Bhan?gr?a? (Punjabi: ????? (Gurmukhi), ?????? (Perso-Arabic); pronounced [p?????a?]) refers to several types of Punjabi-style dance. The earliest developed of these was a folk dance conducted by Punjabis in the central northern areas of the region to celebrate the harvest, and whose general practice had ended by the Partition, 1947.

In the 1950s, a new folk dance, representative of the state of Punjab and composed of glimpses of men’s Punjabi dance styles, was created and eventually received the title of bhangra. First developed in India and attaining a rather standardized form by the 1980s, the folkloric bhangra was exported to other countries by Punjabi emigrants. By the 1990s, a still newer style of dance called bhangra was being staged in the Punjabi Diaspora, often characterized by a fusion with Western dance styles and the use of prerecorded audio mixes. Aside from these specific dance genres, Punjabi dancing in general, especially when done to popular bhangra music, is often casually called "bhangra"

Plakias is a popular tourist resort, located 36km south of Rethymno city, at the exit of a fertile valley surrounded by high mountains and dense olive groves. Next to it empties the river Kotsifos.

One of the major growth drivers of the region is the long beachfront, known as Gialia. The main beach starts near the town and extends to the east for 1.3km, up to Cape Mouri. It is a well organized beach, with cool green waters. Along the beach there is a road, ideal for walking or cycling. Along this road there are several restaurants and hotels, while on the beach there are tamarisk trees, umbrellas, water sports, beach volley courts, snack bars, changing rooms, showers, etc.

The eastern part of the long beach is called Paligremnos. The beach is sandy and very well organized, next to hotels and restaurants. Characteristic of Paligremnos are nearby huge vertical cliffs that rise to a great height. There are caves, dug by Wehrmacht during the German Occupation. Moreover, this place is called Gonates (i.e. knees), because according to tradition, the epic hero Digenis kneeled there to drink water from a local spring. Lastly, in Paligremnos a strange phenomenon takes place on every full moon, from September to January. The moonlight is reflected in the mirror-like towering cliffs. Thus, many big squids approach the beach and locals gather them with big sticks.

The main beach of Plakias is located between Paligremnos and Plakias village. It is similarly well-organized. In its western part, near the village, the river Kotsifos empties. Therefore, the sea water temperature is low.

West of the village, between the village and the new harbour of Plakias, lies the second beach of Skinos. Skinos has many rocks and sand. Next to the village, the beach is slightly organized with umbrellas, while as you head to the west it gets rockier. Skinos is ideal for fishing and snorkeling. The road that heads to the nearby beach of Souda comes along this beach.

Crete (Greek: ?????, Kríti [‘kriti]; Ancient Greek: ?????, Kr?t?) is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the thirteen administrative regions of Greece.

The capital and the largest city of Crete is Heraklion. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own poetry, and music). Crete was once the center of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC), which is currently regarded as the earliest recorded civilization in Europe.

The island is first referred to as Kaptara in texts from the Syrian city of Mari dating from the 18th century BC, repeated later in Neo-Assyrian records and the Bible (Caphtor). It was also known in ancient Egyptian as Keftiu, strongly suggesting some form similar to both was the Minoan name for the island.

The current name of Crete is thought to be first attested in Mycenaean Greek texts written in Linear B, through the words ke-re-te (*Kr?tes; later Greek: ??????, plural of ????),[4] and ke-re-si-jo (*Kr?sijos; later Greek: ???????), "Cretan". In Ancient Greek, the name Crete (?????) first appears in Homer’s Odyssey.[8] Its etymology is unknown. One speculative proposal derives it from a hypothetical Luvian word *kursatta (cf. kursawar "island", kursattar "cutting, sliver").[9] In Latin, it became Creta.

The original Arabic name of Crete was Iqr??iš (Arabic: ??????? < (???) ??????), but after the Emirate of Crete’s establishment of its new capital at ??? ??????Rab? al-?andaq (modern Iraklion), both the city and the island became known as ?????? (Khandhax) or ???????? (Khandhakas), which gave Latin and Venetian Candia, from which French Candie and English Candy or Candia. Under Ottoman rule, in Ottoman Turkish, Crete was called Girit (????).

An Arabic Update on Internet News

The Arab World has been going through dramatic changes and is to witness plenty of bloodshed and disturbances of gigantic proportions.  Every form of media is covering the Arabian world and feeding it to their viewers.  The majority of the news that are being viewed across the world is the news that is broadcasted on CNN, BBC and the penetration of Arab news channels is remarkably low. It is important, therefore, that a news channel from the Arab nations makes its presence felt and gives a level playing field even for the Arabian nations.

Every story has different versions and a viewer one news channel is limited to the news and views presented by that channel. The viewers therefore, build theories on the facts that they have witnessed and can lead to misconceptions about the Arab people by themselves.  The flow of information or news cannot be ebbed. People use all forms of news such as the newspapers, magazines, television and the internet. Online viewing of news has been gathering momentum with people needing to update themselves on the developments across the world. Several news web sites are found to be live streaming of news from across the world. The social networking such as Facebook, twitter and Google+ seem to be playing a bigger role in flashing developments that have been happening on a minute to minute basis which are shared by viewer after viewer thereby generating public opinion on an incident. Instant videos, live photographs in High definition are all defining what the news of today should be all about.

The internet media has definitely made the world smaller and the people are now curious to know about different places, people, cultures, language etc.  People from across the world want to visit and explore the different places in the world and therefore make generous news of the internet to know about the countries they want to visit, the places of interest in that country etc.  A separate web page from the Arab world, therefore, will be visited with interest by people who want to know about the weather, people, and cuisine and get themselves before hand for the trip. People, therefore, get the much needed respite from the usual travel web sites which promise a lot and deliver little. A good look at the Arab web site and the viewer will know what to derive from that place.

An Arab web site, on the other hand, plays a vital role in educating the Arabs about themselves. It will make them aware about the goings-on in the world. It helps to enhance their perception about the views of the west and the rest of the world. They can access high resolution photographs, real time videos of the events that have been occurring and help to keep them in pace with the rest of the world. It also makes possible for the Arabs who are settled out of their countries to know about the goings on in their country.  An Arab news web page can provide news from the world of business, sports, fashion all in rich Arabic script.  

It is time for the Arabs to open up for the world.
