On the minaret, this is crazy huh? I'll laugh my ass off if its something we missed in Bolivia! But that turns up nothing, for me anyway so who knows.........

I tried about every combination that I could think of ..some samples off the top of my head  :umn:
just "minaret"
minaret search every place they are going or have been, yes even South America!
mosque with square minaret
minaret on Church
minaret on castle
sphere mosque aka minaret
..ball topped  :lol:

I love this one in Egypt, just for the fun of it :funny:,  so maybe its trickery like the movie studio in Morocco  :funny: ?

Of course you can't see mountains that far away due to the curvature of the earth. It is physically impossible. According to an authoritative source, "Due to the curvature of the earth, the line of sight for devices not mounted on towers is limited to 16 miles (26km)." 105 miles is almost 7 times further.

A little late I know, but I'm surprised I've never thought of using NatGeo as a resource before: Cholita article, video, and gallery here (including a nice picture of what looks like the Multi).

Thanks, Slowhatch. one thing I learned from the National Geographic video you recommended is that thte cholitas fight on Sundays. That would be April 27 and Chateau cites the evidence of the date in the newspaper that AR13 teams visited the cholitas at el Alto Mulitfunctional Arena on April 28, which is Mopnday. That means that all fighters and maybe the crowd would have to have been paid to participate.

That would be April 27 and Chateau cites the evidence of the date in the newspaper that AR13 teams visited the cholitas as el Alto Fulitfunctional Arena on April 28, which is Monday. That means that all fighters and maybe the crowd would have to have been paid to participate.

I suspect the crowd was recruited by TAR and signed waivers to appear on TV.  You may have noticed other people, especially at airports, with their faces digitally smudged to hide their identities. No signed waiver, no face on TV.

I love your Egyptian minaret, puddin.  Maybe it denotes a certain sect of Islam.  Just to confuse things, I found this picture described only as "One of Almaty's mosques".   :angel:

Too bad we can't see the top, but a few of the features are similar.  At least we know that some minarets in Almaty have roofs.   :lol:

WHY are we talking about this in Leg 3? ???

But I think that could be another view of the Almaty Nur-Daulet Mosque, Boingo--I think I saw it labelled somewhere.

Posted in speculation :lol:

This shot was taken 105 miles from Delhi:

soooo.. you're saying that you can see this mountain 135 miles away in Delhi...  :ascared

I'll defer to our resident expert, patlini... is this true?  Can you see mountains while in Delhi?

no mountains in delhi.... just mountains of good food  :funny:

 :lol:  ...sonofabitch...  (:;)   puddin, you had it right with your Egyptian minaret....  :ascared

 :jumpy:  found it! .... I believe it's the Egyptian Islamic Center (mosque) in Almaty. (that would explain the Egyptian architecture of the minaret).   :snicker:  ...sonofabitch!  :knuckles:  :groan: :res:

Oh well, another myster solved... what's next?  ;)

Boingo, it is logical that the mosque should be in Almaty and not in Auckland, Delhi, or Mosscow. However, I can't match up your information with any of the 4(up one from yesterday) mosques in Almaty. Here is the revised list:

Islamic Places in Almaty, Kazakhstan 
Masjids 
Masjid in Otegen Batyr, Almaty, Almaty Region
Phone: 8252-24944
 
Masjeed_Gornyi_Gigant, Almaty, Gornyi Gigant
Phone:

Masjid Tastak, Almaty
Phone: 3272-559609

Almaty City Central Masjid, Almaty
Phone: +7 3272-308002
 
My problem is that none of the 3 of them that have pictures match your photo. Which of the above is the EIC Mosque(none appears to be named that)?

According to the map, the area behind Nur Mubarak/Nur Mosque/Egypt Cultural Centre is described as Al-Farabi Kazakh National University and "Botanic Garden." She looks a little sad in the confessional; maybe they're out, or maybe it was just a long day.

I think the list might not be accurate apskip, which is we were so long in finding it?

Brilliant Boingo!!  Wonderful!!  :jumpy: :hearts: :jumpy:

Places of religious worship are also being built in Almaty. Alongside a number of newly erected mosques and Orthodox churches, special mention should be made of the Egyptian Islamic Center and the Mubarak Islamic University - the Egyptian Government's gift to Almaty.
http://www.geocities.com/TheTropics/1915/article-ala.htm

Is this it?
Quote
As regards the cultural cooperation between the two countries, Kazakhstan is the only country in central Asia where there is an Egyptian cultural center and university at the same time, in Almaty there exist the Egyptian Cultural Center and Noor Mubarak University for Islamic Studies, where Egypt funds the salaries of the professors staff through Ministry of Awquaf, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Al-Azhar Al-Sharif and Ministry of Higher Education). The university offers educational and training services for 850 students in a number of specifications: (Islamic Studies, Arabic and English languages, Arabic and translation, and religion).

Egypt offers to the Kazakhstani universities, including Noor Mubarak University, 22 Egyptian professors, and offers 6 scholarships for Egyptian students for the PhD.
