Breaking Road Rules

Drivers get  the imam's blessing, instead of paying a toll.

In Esentepe village of Rize's Derepazarı district, because of a
shortage of available land in the village, a road has been built 
under a mosque and its adjacent course building.  This is yet
another of the innovative infrastructure measures taken by Black
Sea residents, as the result of the region's undulating geography.

When construction began on the mosque and course building, 
villagers realized that there was no other place for a road to go so
an opening was made through the buildings.  The mosque and 
course building had to be built 5 meters higher to accommodate
the road.  The mosque's imam, Orhan Büyük, noted that "People
find the road interesting and come to take pictures of it. Those 
who see it are amazed."

//ed. note: not to be outdone, the architects (no doubt, Black
Sea natives themselves) of TNT Editor-in-Chief's new residence
in Erenköy, Istanbul, have taken saving the trees to a new 
level, at the expense of the driveway.//
