Wind was geeting stronger again. It was rising dust and little rocks. They were drumming on me helmet.


When I reached Murgab the wind eased and weather got clear again

My school with the Mount Zerkalky (Mirrors) in the backgrounds. They call it Mirrors for its surface keeps to shine for a long time after dawn

I was to this school, I remember everything. It was hard in the winter. A small coal stove warmed poorly in classroom. Teachers allowed us to sit in winter clothes and gloved hands. In the winter when it's -30C on the street . Bad-quality diesel freeze in generator, and often no electricity. A lot of what was not. Vegetables and fruits - is a luxury. Only when the holidays. Despite this we have lived here is not bad. I think now level living here has become worse.

When kids see an alien they gladly shout Hello! Looks like they have gotten used to expatriates.

Murgab’s Central Street. Like all such streets, in the past it was called Lenin Street

And here is himself – the Eternal Grandfather Lenin.

In the evening I met with my classmates. He was pleased and invited me to his house for the night. I know that 100 grams of vodka is good for acclimatization to the altitude. We drank two bottles!)) I was worry "mountain sickness" visit me at night. However, I immersed myself in sweet memories of my childhood and I slept very well.

to be continued...
