Sunday with family. It was a great shoot.
Did you know that the Garden of "Blühendes Barock Schloss" as well as the Castle were build from turkic ottoman, or better muslim slaves? Nearly every Castle and every important building from the time of the seldschuk's first try to invade Vienna in Austria, to the time of the Ottoman Sultan Sulayman the Kanooni, untill ca 1680. The slaves were beought to germany and other countries, some of them got in to the British Crown Family somehow. They did their best to assimilate all of them also the kids, by marrying them to some Christians and other stuff. The german culture gained some quality from the "Beutetürken" (Slaveturks). For example the Croissant which was made from the Baklavadough from an Austrian conditor in the shape of the Moon in the Ottoman Flagg, or, the favorite of the german, the "Apfeltasche" (Applebag?). Also the turks/ottomans brought the coffee to Europe, as well as other cultural richness. Some Cities in Germany or Surnames speak louder then the History theachers or Books, "Obertürkheim" or "Untertürkheim", "Türkengasse" were places where the slaves did had their barraks- surnames like "turk", " soldan", "sadok", "Aly", "Fatme" etc. - All that are signs of History that people can't hide.
