Welcome to my Homepage !
In case we don't know each other, my name is
Claus Seyfried. Born and raised up in Mainz, Germany, on the beautiful
but now already living at Stuttgart, also Germany, for a long long time
(of course Stuttgart is also a beautiful city).
If you want to see a foto of my own, scroll down on your own risk.
Anybody interested what to see here else ?
Well, mainly Travellogues !
For instance a large
report about China
with nearly 300 fotos. Some are really not so bad !
View the map
Or may be you like the report about a plane hopping in
with more than 200 fotos.
Well, the main focus was on my favorite city in the western hemisphere, Rio de Janeiro.
Besides I made it to Manaus, Buenos Aires, Colonia in Uruguay, Quito
in Ecuador, Santa Cruz de la Sierra and Samaïpata in Bolivia.
My favorite city in the eastern hemisphere is
closely followed by the capital of the Ukraine, Kiev.
So soon travellogues about Moscow and Kiev will be added. The fotos are already here !
you find an interactive plan of the
has nearly as many beutiful buildings like Moscow.
But that city is by far smaller and may explored by walking.
Compared to the large and cosmopolitan Moscow the
Capital of the Ukraine is pretty familiar.
With the Pecherska Lavra she hosts one of the oldest and most important
monastirs of east european christíanity.
Already played chess ? Yes, I did so, ... long ago.
Because I didn't want to forget all about chess, I put the most important
ones of my ancient games to the web server. And I supplied an additional
PGN browser which enables to view all the games straight on and backward
just like you wish.
Besides you find a couple of chess links ........ and if I like, you may
challenge me online to an internet game ! You find me as csey in the
FIDE Game Zone !
By the way, who was the great chess world champion in the twenties
and the great star at the famous Moscow International Tournament in 1925 ?
Right, José Raúl Capablanca from Cuba.
In Havanna, on a sideway of the Rambla (Calle 23) there is a windy stall standing around
and serving as a chess club.
Outside you see a blackboard reminding the famous countryman.
Unfortenately, I didn't take any foto of that. Instead I took some fine photos
of old cuban cars.
If you like old cars, don't miss a look at
Here however, the european brands are dominating.
Ok, that's me !
To enlarge the fotos just click on them !

Please excuse my bad english and all the missing translations.
As long as the translations of the travellogues are still missing,
you could at least enjoy the fotos on the german pages.
May be you would like to improve the english text or may you could help
me with some german-english translations.
