Итак – опять Алматы. Впрочем, Алматы не может надоесть. Это слово – и гора Уш-Коныр, и гостеприимная страна с оборзевшими ГАИшниками (полициясы – они себя именно так называют). Алматы – это лагман и шорпа невиданной вкусноты, это клубника в мае, это дверь в ЛЕТО, когда в остальных местах снег едва […]

As I think, every person in the world have dreams while sleeping. But some people can remember what they have seen, and the athers - doesn't. Dreams can be different. It can be like adventure story, or a thriller... Sometimes your dream looks like a real life. And you feel very strange when you wake up in the morning and go to the fridge because you 100% sure, that there's an ice-cream inside. Because you remember that you put it there. And it's not easy to believe, that the ice-cream was in the dream only.

I start falling ill with Turkey. So start putting together information about this country. 200px-Canadian_visa[1] The capital of Turkey is Ankara and not Stambul as I always thought.

About busses Women have got special status in Turkey. If she travels alone, she must have special place in a bus. Woman can sit only with a woman or alone. So, it seems to me, that it is rather safe to travel in Turkey for women. Or, maybe, I must find some more information…
