Assaraya Al-Hamra !

Assaraya Al-Hamra !
Made by BenTaher
( Assaraya Alhamra ) (English: The Red Fortress ) (Arabic: السرايا الحمراء ) alternate spelling Tripoli's castle, Essaraya Elhamra, Saraya Hamra, Sarayi, The Red Castle is Located in Tripoli City, Libya ( Trabulus ). Assaraya Al-Hamra is built into the southeast corner of the city wall, overlooking the harbor. The existing plan of the main complex is Ottoman, with a mosque, harem and many courtyards, but the castle is undoubtedly built on the foundations of earlier fortresses. The intricate network of paths within the castle reflects the style of winding arcaded streets seen in the old city. The fortress has been added to by each successive generation of Tripoli's rulers, and thus contains a mix of architecture and decoration. The main gateway dates from the 16th century, and shows the influence of the Spanish rulers at the time. Oooh, I Forgot something very Important it's my 1st shot by Sony H10 ( my New Camera ) ;-)

Colonel Gaddafi surrounds himself with 40 handpicked female bodyguards. All of them swear an oath that they will give their lives for him. They never leave his side, night or day, and he insists they remain virgins. There is no shortage of volunteers for what is seen as a prestigious job. A special training college puts recruits through a tough programme. Girls who don't drop out emerge as trained killers, experts with firearms & martial arts. Gaddafi makes the final selection and, despite the virginal tag, rumours abound that he demands their sexual favors. Charlie - 3 Gaddafi - 40 This a very rare image in poster form of the Colonel's all female bodyguard detail. Over the years the original poster has faded from green to blue. [This was taken in secret at the Tripoli Museum, Libya]
