Two months in Central Asia

Two months in Central Asia

We warmly spent 2 months in Central Asia and we want to briefly tell how it was. In our post there will be photos, then some remembered funny stories and useful information.

Anya

Sasha

Our route

On him liked most:Fan Mountains, Dushanbe, Bukhara.
And a little bit in opinions were separated by: Anya liked Alai, Sasha – Pamir.

I remembered the roads:
From Kulyab to Khorog all FIG!
From Murgab to Osh oh the road is good!

Accommodation

Below – Useful Links-Addresses for Budget Travels in Central Asia.

Tashkent
The hotels are quite expensive, so we perfectly fit into a private hostel for students of theatrical university at ul. Glinka Gai, d. 13. Hostess call Shahid, very colorful lady.

Bukhara
Lived at the local woman Mahabat with her cheerful grandson. On the square of the minor there is a hookah, he should be on your left hand – go to the arch. On the first turn to the left, there until I stop, then right, house 6. We paid $ 10 per day. For cash, Mahabat may help with registration.

Train
Generally, in Uzbekistan, sometimes it is more profitable to spend the night in the train.
So we did: from Bukhara to Samarkand and from Samarkand to Tashkent spent the night in the train.
Buy tickets in advance. PlazcarPurt is replenished quickly.

Osh
Lived at the local, behind the city at the foot of the mountain next to the Suliman Mountain, if you go from the city. The house is on the opposite side from the automotive market.
You can ask where the family lives, which gives the rooms to travelers.
Cost per night – about $ 5 for two.

Sarah Mogol
This village on the road to the basic camp at the peak of Lenin. Lived in CBT camp (Community Based Tourism). Cost of the place for the tent per night about 200 rubles. But for Russian students, tourists can also pass the place for 100.

Peak Lenin
Near the Pamir Expedition camp in the tent lived in the basic camp. Did not pay.
Ate from local residents living nearby. $ 5 per plate Plov / soup. Such prices.

Dushanbe
Pleasant city. Very nice.
As a result, we returned 3 times in Dushanbe. It was very great.
And in our opinion, it was the best place: we were going to go beyond the city to spend the night in a tent, but here we noticed a beautiful hill. Local living on the hill accepted us sincerely: gave water to wash and warm cake.
Separate theme – these are views from this hill to the city. Just a bomb! How to find a place:
If you leave the city from the "waterproof", standing near the market on the right, see the hill ..

Visas. Permites. Borders.

Visas to the countries that we visited is not needed, only registration is needed.

Uzbekistan
Everything is simple here, if you stay in the hotel, then you can register automatically. But hotels there are not cool and expensive, and we took advantage of the rule that in the first 3 working days registration is not needed. Therefore, for the first time we went to Kyrgyzstan in three days, and for the second time – to Kazakhstan. Between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, a convenient boundary located 30-40 minutes by bus from Tashkent. Light boundary, though crowded. Everything went fast, this is the favorite story of Sasha that he was in Kazakhstan as many as 25 minutes ..

Tajikistan
Registration costs about 600 rubles (90 somon). Is given for a month, and even if you leave the country and drive back, you do not need a new one. Comfortable. Registration is done in any OVIR. Required documents: passport, photo, migration card and copies. We did in Murgab.

Pass in GBAO. In Gorno-Badakhshan, the necessary pass is done for a long time and is quite expensive. He is done in Dushanbe. But there is a small trick – if you drive from Osh, it’s just nowhere to do, we wanted to do in Dushanbe and return. They tried to arrange him in Murgab, we were refused, they said, what can be done only in the capital, so we drove the Pamir without skipping.

Kyrgyzstan. The most friendly country. No registration and visas, and even enter the Russian passport.

Transitions. The most important and positive news: you are foreigners, so on all borders we were conducted either in a separate window, or without a queue. It is convenient and pleasant, because many borders are too loaded ("Pigs, noise Color Asia .."). Under this rule, all boundaries are suitable, except for two.

1. Border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan by Osh. There are no people at all, it’s not very convenient if you are driving hitchhiking. We were there in the evening and managed only to leave Kyrgyzstan. The border of Tajikistan was already closed, so we spent the night in neutral territory.
2. The border between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Cute tanning with Tajik border guards who wished us good luck, we got into hell, called Uzbek customs. If for Tajiks we were great travelers, besides, Russians, then for Uzbeks – drug addicts, which in all pockets were carrying herb or something worse.
But we had only a lot of condoms, in Tajikistan, they are cool and cheap (probably because of the unrequisite). There were 20 of their packs 20, and they all were carefully folded by Sasha in my backpack. They were also in the belt bag and in the pants, in short – in the eyes of the customs I looked at a minimum pornstar. In a light shock, she asked why so much, what a honest answer was received – do not want children. The day for her clearly did not ask, because, continuing the inspection, she removed from my backpack for hands and fingers. For a second, she thought, apparently, comprehending all the information she got about me from my personal belongings. After that, apparently, she pierced deep sadness, and she quickly finished my inspection.

Sasha was a worthy guy of his girl and at that very moment patiently explained the border guards of the names of the tablets, and he had countless many. They were not soared and asked – not exactly prohibited? He was well done until he scattered from a plastic bag his protein. All, gently, speaking alert. But Sasha smiled and offered to try, naturally explained why he needed. They politely refused.

I tried to describe it positive and fun, but in fact it was all pretty tedious and long. So be patient and get rid of condoms and protein.

About the city that seemed to us the most friendly, fresh and positive – about Dushanbe.

  • Mark Chung-Chang and UFO – according to Sasha.
  • For my taste, ice cream from automatic machines tastier))

: I remember Dushanbe the lack of traffic jams, delicious ice cream, our open shower overlooking Dushanbe, old trolley buses and a common warm, homely atmosphere.

History.
Botanical Garden in Dushanbe.
Sasha was interesting to see the rosary. He came to the guards and very politely asked:
"Tell me, please, and where is the rosary?"
The guards responded in the same way: "Che?"
I realized that this is not an option, but Sasha did not lose "Please tell me where the rosary is located"
And again: "Che?" . And so time 3.
We have already walked to the exit and, about a miracle, we meet an intelligent unhealthy, which on our question indicates where the rosary is located.
What I honestly told him that he was the first man in this Botsad, who at least knows something.
In response, the uncle handed me a hand and introduced himself:
"Director of Botanical Garden, Yusupov".

Sources that we used to prepare:
-site bpclub))
-Lonely Planet, but as always filtering information from this guidebook
-Gingertea.Ru
-Krotov’s book and Sapunov "middle Asia. Practical guidebook. "
-Panoramio.Uz – very decent and beautiful source

Local residents have also helped us.
Many thanks for info.

Separately, it is worth telling how we moved:

We did not put any specific goals for timing.
We decided that let everything go, how comes.
In reserve We had 55 days, Therefore, we could afford a lot 🙂

Sasha: "Personally, I sought to organize a more harmonious journey, focusing not at the sights and types, but on a comfortable "Life in the journey".
That is, without a delay I was ready to sacrifice the view of the peak of Lenin for the sake of the appearance of Ani 🙂
We could go in for sports in the park instead of the museums, or sleep, without reaching only 2 km from Jashilkul, because I do not want to go in bad weather to watch the lake for show".

Learn how to score on a desire to see all the beauty and not to be greedy species – it’s damn important in the Pamirs: in this region overload occurs quickly – all the same height makes itself felt.
Even local children, we were playing football near Jashilkul, deflated after ten minutes of active run. What can we say about us, urban.
Yes. Then each of his opinion and his principles. But personally, I walk 20 km with a backpack weighing 30 kg at altitudes from 3500 gives a little pleasure. By this I am most like to work: because time is money -.
And I tried to sacrifice time and energy to enjoy the views and communicate with people in the conscious state.
If I had a spare couple of thousand $, I would have behaved differently.
For example, an Englishman, Mark, took with friends rented a jeep at a cost of 80 cents per km, and went in peace, enjoying the views.

Moving hitchhiking in the Pamirs, too, can become "work":
for example, at the site of Sarah Mogol – Murghab – Alichur – Ishkashim passes on a few cars a day, of which take you want to free a maximum of one . in three days)))
Then you’re all the same word car, but you will know that the local guys are not doing breaks "look at this beauty", and local travel non-stop, so much so that after 2 hours you no longer want nothing more than to stop and rest.

Well, really, why should they have to bring up, when they can pick up local or foreign money. Pamir – a region where the carriage of local people and work with foreigners – this is a business.

Therefore we do not much fooled, but haggling, paid. And moves us to the desired place.
IMHO, it is better to pay a little money than half a day to stand in one place, waiting for cars.
(Walking with heavy backpacks desire is not enough).
Again, there was a time the money.

we spent 55 days on all 30.000 rubles *.
* It does not include the cost of the flight Moscow-Tashkent-Moscow

PHOTO
-Yellow truck of two Americans with their travel project worldwide Whiteacorn.Com. They helped us very much, throwing us from Achur to Khorog.
We have a week left for this short.

Sasha:For the second time I visited Bukhara, Samarkand and Tashkent.
From these three cities Most liked Bukhara, her old town.
In it, you feel comfortable and pacificent.
Walking to yourself well on the old streets, and at every corner – a monument.
Sometimes even the impression that you are in a fairy tale.
There is a lot of interesting things in the city, and it is better not to tell about it – better to show:
Looking at Panoramio.uz you yourself can outline the places you want to visit.

As for Samarkand and Tashkent – I do not like it there, not my.
Yes, cities are impressed. Yes, Samarkand monuments are very pompous and beautiful.
But touch the culture and get your emotions and in places simpler.

Stay in Samarkand on the second day – dismiss.
But in Bukhara.

.
But in Bukhara there is such a merryptic musfi.
And here are some funny stories from his life.

1.
Having decided to publicly humiliate the Musfiks for many years of evil jokes, Emir convened his courtesy, seized them in the hall of the palace, and Musfiki ordered to sit at the most honorable place.
The servant put in front of each convolution with donating clothes. Cut, laid before Musfiki, was more than others, and the wrapper it was embroidered with gold. Like everyone, the Musfiki unfolded his convolution, but it was not a silk robe, like others, but a donkey letter.
Courtesome dirty. But Musfi did not change in his face, he began to happily with the Allah and praise the generosity of Emir.
One of those present shouted to him:
– Unhappy, what you enjoy? From such humiliation you should cry!
– Obsiba! – answered the poet. – The people went to the moloss that the emir was in disadvantage, but now everything is clear to everyone that this Solva is incorrect. On the contrary, his Highness is especially favorable to me. What did you get all? Ordinary gifts! And me Mr. Emir complained his own nonsense!

2.
Just at the time when Musfiki on the terrace of the palace talked with Padishah, he entered herald:
– Sovereign, can I give Musfiki your decree in your presence?
– Hand!
Running a scroll, Musfiki read the decree with Padisham appointed him by the head of the Oslov. What did all the officials who received the appointment arrived at the custom, Musfiki put the seal to the eyes, fastened the signature of Padishah, stuck a scroll into the folds of his chalms and, having gotten from the place, he molded Padyshah three deep down. But then he went around Padishah and sat on the terrace with him.
– a new position you, I see, satisfied, "said Padishah," I don’t understand just why you sat down above me?
– with his gracious command, sovereign, – replied Musfiki, – you were given at my disposal and ourselves. And therefore, by direct meaning, I have the right to this place.
– Musfiki! – Padishah indignant, – You are not only brazen, but also. I do not know if you yourself from the donkey at least on the span?
Musfiki quickly measured the distance between themselves and Padishah:
– precisely, Your Majesty, – Exactly to PJ!

3.
Interpretation of sleep Emir.
Emir saw in a dream that all his teeth fell out. He caused a dream interpreter.
– I can not hide the truth, – said that – your children and all your relatives will die before you!
For such a gloomy prediction, Emir ordered the executive executive. After execution, Emir met with Musfiki.
– Can you at least explain to me the true meaning of my strange dream?
– Good dream, – replied Musfi. – You will live in this light longer than your children and relatives!
Soothed Emir generously rewarded Musfiki.

Tale in the eyes

And at the end I want to tell about our little project

I and Anya like to test with the children: the children’s world is riddled and beautiful, and they are very much infected with positive, fun with them. Moreover, personally they often saved from depression.
Maybe someone also occurred to the thought that you can volone for children in the course of travel. So we did in relation to children of remote villages.
As a result, we are very positive and useful to spend time together.

Motivation My like. Different people have different needs. And someone need not only species, food, communication. Some feel the need for activities. Who is familiar with protracted travel and satisfying from them, will understand me.
So, joint activity with children helps to diversify the way, make it more harmonious. And you feel happier in the journey.

As for the formalities:
We had simple musical instruments, soft toys on the hand of ala-puppet theater and a skier expander. Plus We bought gifts: balls of 6 pieces, souvenirs-dolls pieces 15, color pencils and paper – I don’t remember how much.
All left bucks 120-150. I am sure that this is a nonsense, compared to what we got in return.
Also important skills and skills of communication with children.
I am lucky with this in some sense, because I sometimes work in children’s camps, and it helps me strongly.
But ultimately, I consider it a more important desire to communicate with children, openness and positivity – all this feel very well.
They often don’t care what you can’t play with them in anything – they just want to take off and talk.

As you can see, our attitude towards children remote villages was conscious and planned. But we did not try to find children, and play with them – everything turned out somehow by itself: the children themselves appeared next to us, and in our backpacks there was an inventory so that we could all together play sports and creativity.

As a result, I believe that we are not the fact that Volonelli for children. We just have been friends with them.

Output

. That journey it turned out. Anya: 3 months before that, I flew out of 5 * Hotel Egypt and thought that I would never have a web there – tired. I wanted something new. I wanted – got. I learned to put a tent and turn the sleeping bag, cook on the burner, to carry a backpack (as his mother called – snailing house), carbon and distinguish between Uzbeks and Tajiks. And I loved this life.
I would come back again? – Yes
It’s cooler than Egypt? – Yes, if so in a thousand
It’s cooler than surfing? -EEE, can I compare them, reflecting in the next post. Oh Bali.

UAE card with resorts and airports

UAE card with resorts and airports

The proximity of the resort to airports and attractions often plays a key role in choosing a vacation spot. In this article, let’s talk about the Arab Emirates – cities and their districts, resorts and airports.

Important! Not all the Emirates are now (February 2021) are open to tourists. What are the openings that are closed, what are the conditions of the entrance, read the article on the link above.

Mutual location We visually showed on the map you can see below. Click on the map to see it in a large size.

Important note about airports!

In the UAE there are several tens of airports, but there is no sense on the map. The fact is that aircraft from Russia arrive only four of them: Dubai International (DXB), Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), Abu Dhabi International (AUH) and Sharjah International (SHJ).

The remaining airports serve for local flights, airplanes with workers from India or charters from Europe.

Another important note!

When buying a tour to the UAE, always carefully watch the arrival airport and departure. Not always tour operators include a batch tour of the tickets to the nearest airport. It happens that it is more profitable for them to carry tourists 150 kilometers to save on airline tickets.

Most often there are tours in Abu Dhabi with arrival in Dubai. In this case, it will have to go on a tourist bus 150 kilometers (2 hours), and from Abu Dhabi Airport to the hotel would have to go 20-30 minutes.

Emirate Dubai

Dubai city occupies the whole strip of the Emirate’s coast. We can say that the city of Dubai and the resort of Dubai is the same thing. For tourist, the area of ​​Dubai is important, in which the hotel stay will be located.

Jumeira – District of the most luxury beach hotels. This area takes almost half the coast.

Under the sails of ecological ethics

Under the sails of ecological ethics

Like many colorful names of remote places, the word "Zanzibar" – everyone is heard, but not associated with nothing with anything, but rather the vague dreams of "Miracle island". Of course, the real archipelago in the Indian Ocean is not only violent paints and the kingdom of exotic, but also everyday problems. True, here they sometimes are solved very original ..

The speed ferry between the mainland and Zanzibar is rapidly under the ocean waves. Passengers on board – fully, and their racial affiliation with difficulty can be determined "approximately". They are alone similar to Africans, others – on Arabs, and often all these features are mixed and merged together. As if for a complete confusion, Indian outfits flashed in the crowd ..

Such an ethnovinegret is characteristic of the Zanzibarsky archipelago. Trade relations that the centuries associated it with other coasts of the Indian Ocean, a logically led to relations personal between local and "Guests" – on a mass scale. As a result, there was a unique island community of dozens and hundreds of composite "Particles", combined only with general language, Swahili.

Closer to the islands, the ferry move slows down. The line of palm crowns grows on the horizon from iridescent solar glare, then the minarets of Stone Tauna arise and finally – the whiteness of the luxurious buildings of the time of the Sultanate.

"Earlier – says Said, pouring us tea with spices, – just in such an early, as it is now, everywhere in the city Rades, bells of sellers of coffee. Each self-respecting Zanzibaret started a day with a cup of mocha, drunk at the door of his own home". Said about seventy and "earlier" means for him – with monarchy, before the revolution of 1964.

In fact, Arabic custom start a day with strong coffee, probably good "fitted" These narrow streets that cause associations with so far from here by the old city quarters of Tunisia and Morocco. But today black mocha gave way to soluble burda called "Africa". Large Arab traders also left – over the past forty years, the features of the eve "Elegant era" Almost disappeared from the memory of Zanzibar. You can catch them today only in architecture: houses from white coral lime, with their richly decorated doors – quite unusual for Africa, the spectacle. Especially noticeable by the past Gloss in the appearance of Bay El-Adjaiba, wonderland, – the Sultan Palace of the XIX century. Now there is a museum.

However, majestic monuments are able to remind not only of glorious times when it was customary to say that "All East Africa dances under Zanzibar Dudka", but also about the main historical quality "African Venice": cosmopolitis in everything. In food, traditions, in religion. The towers of the two churches and the Hindu temple were torn to the sky over Zanzibar City (Stone Town represents his historical center) in parallel to the minarets of mosques … Although the latter, of course, is still much more: "The main faith" The archipelago remains Islam, brought here, like all the lands of Swahili, Arab merchants. It actually determines and directs social life, although the African start is mixed here. Say, women Zanzibar do not wear simple handkerchiefs or black chadras, and fully closed in motley fabrics, Kang Hangs, brought from the interior of Tanzania. And someone continues to spend the spirit of nature and demons at all (this is despite the fact that, according to official data, 98 percent of the population – Muslims!). So, they say that in 1972, 1980, 1995, 2000 and 2001, outbreaks of a particular activity of a certain demon named Potaveba, known for their tendency to depravate actions against men. Conscious people even prudently went to bed right on the street.

From Sultan to the Republic

Civilization of people who spoke to Swahili arose in the XI century. It was then that the tribes of the eastern shore of Africa ("Swahili" Comes from Arabic "Sakhil", "Coast") included in the busy trade on the Indian Ocean. She is fast "Led" them and the Arabian Peninsula and Persia and India, and even in China. It is clear that the Persian, and the Arab merchants, with whom Swahili tied close relations, were actively settled on their lands. At the same time, the settlement of Zanzibar, who initially ruled the Dynasty of Suakhili. Later, in the XVI century, Portuguese colonizers changed them, and those, in turn, were supplanted with the same Arabs from the Oman Sultanate. At the last stage, in the XIX century, the British were, who forced Sultan to recognize their protectorate as a result of the shortest war in history (according to the Guinness Book of Records!) – English frigate gave one artillery volley, and 20 minutes after the announcement of the start of hostilities, the ruler Zanzibar surrendered. What and retained autonomous power for the future. When colonies in Africa began one after another to gain independence (in the middle of the twentieth century), the events developed for his descendants not so favorable. A few years after the Europeans’ care, in 1964m, with the broad support of the population with African roots, an uprising broke out, which was reduced at least 17,000 lives, as well as the crown from the Sultan’s head. The first President of Zanzibar, Abade Karum, has entered into an agreement after a couple of months later, already a couple of months, who has recently acquired freedom of Tangany. – On the union in one state. So the map appeared Tanzania.

"Cursed" wealth

. What is not for everyone, I must say, it was. Own item is far from every resident of Zanzibar, one of the poorest countries of the world, where the average annual income is $ 250 per person, and children are born so much that 45 percent of the population is under 16. Local prospects for future foggy. Just once go through the quarter called NG’ambo ("Other side"), which occupies in Zanzibar City five times more space than tourists Stone Town visited to draw up the most impossible impression: instead "coral" Chambers – primitive hut made of concrete blocks and smashing clay mazanas. In the sand and dirt on the road part of the leg sinking to the ankle, windows with a glass or at least a grid for protection against malarious mosquitoes (malaria still – the most common cause of deaths on the islands) in the afternoon you will not find fire. Single jeeps of high officials and other secured people occasionally flashed in this setting, as if visions from another world.

Where did you come from and where there was a former well-being, who was so famous for Zanzibar in the past? After all, a hundred years ago, and even less, he was considered literally the gold archipelago, the financial center of the entire Indookean region.

To the first question answer is not difficult. Ryrhard Kapushinsky, an outstanding Polish reporter who has worked for many years in Africa, called Zanzibar "Cursed island". Here flourished and distributed from here his tentacles in the world of the slave trade. The dealers of the Arabs brought the captives caught in the depths in depths to expose them in local markets, and then, immersing the ships, sent to buyers: to the Middle East and to America. It is believed that only for the second half of the XIX century went here "With hammer" 600,000 nonstalls. And this is not counting those who died on the road from thirst, fever and deprivation … Today, this fishery went down in history – the Christian Cathedral was built on the site of the slave trade in Stone Town. Dtomnov, preserved under his foundation, and now remind of atrocities of that time.

Lost Zanzibar in the last century, its positions and in other, less brutal spheres of trade. Courts, seed from India or Indonesia with a load of spices, stopped needing to stop at Zanzibar. African gold today is also shipped to Europe and North America others – often no less dark – ways. Only a monopoly on the carnation remains. If it were necessary to choose a special emblem for the archipelago, then besides Dhau, traditional sailing boat everywhere, this plant would be the first in the list. He was brought to Zanzibar almost 200 years ago from the homeland of spices, Molukky Islands, and very soon it came to the first place among all local crops, bypassing "volume" Growing Pepper, Cinnamon, Basil, Cocoa. So today it brings half of the poor revenues of the state.

Aromatic carnation, Syzygium Aromaticum – the same flower with it has nothing in common – it grows on uniform medium height trees, which are completely covered with island valleys: because of the air of Zanzibar is filled with fragrance, especially after harvesting: non-painted floral buds, which make up a familiar to all spice, dried before each hut, and often right under the legs, on the streets. The lion’s share goes to export, and the rest is on the oil conversion factory. "Of course, you can visit our factory! Now I will find you!". Greetings to us the main person in small production in the village of Chuck-Chuck. It turned out that he studied in Moscow at that time when Tanzania decided "Try socialism". Economic course went away, warm feelings remained.

However, recently the archipelago has another profitable article – tourism. Only over the past ten years the number of vacationers has increased several times. On the one hand, for the country it is, of course, well: workplaces are created, including – before it was a business unheard – for women. In addition, travel companies vigorously support a variety of public environmental projects: on wastewater purification, to curb poaching – this is because of their interests. Finally, the influx of foreigners contributes to the expansion of the Zanzibarsky horizon: Festivals of film and music are established (it is appropriate to remember that the soloist of the Queen group Freddie Mercury was born on Zanzibar in the family of Indian origin. His real name is Farmer Bulsar, but "thematic" Cafe on the Stone Town Embankment elected much more famous pseudonym for his sign: "Mercury’s").

But there is a medal, as they say, and the reverse side: the behavior of increasingly numerous guests does not always correspond to the strict Muslim morality. It is necessary to remind about it even legally: for example, in 2005, a law prohibiting kissing on the street was adopted on Zanzibar. But it does not help: recently in Stone Town took off several establishments, where alcohol spilled. Jealous of the antiques and purity of the morals do not drell.

Koranic ecology

Among the many islands of the archipelago are two large, main: Pemba and Unguja. Unguja (it is sometimes called the island of Zanzibar with the capital in Zanzibar City) – this is a cultural and political center, it is more urbanized, the whole business life of the archipelago proceeds here. Pembus also nicknamed in the Middle Ages "Green garden" – Such she remained and today: rural and slightly provincial.

In general, it is better "Preserved". For example, I was misali, a very small island at the coast of pexs. He is deserted, but is of great importance for all Zanzibar. Waters around Misali are especially rich in fish, this is a real natural fisheries, which provides ecosystems of coral reefs and mangrove thickets. Fishermen from different villages pexes and even Unguji readily spend on several days to get here. Finally, this block of sushi is sacred: Local MGGAN, Shaman-Lekari, come here to collect healing herbs and bring victims to the spirits of Smetani, who are inhabited, as it is believed in numerous caves.

In the mid-1990s, the autonomous government of Zanzibar decided to pass a meal for rent a foreign investor for the construction of a hotel complex. But the tempting project was never destined to come. First, the village communities rebelled – the prospect of the arrival of rich, but uninvited guests could not cause enthusiasm among the traditionalist population, and for the fate of spirits fear. And soon the protest connected some international organizations, alarmed by the threat of destruction of unique coral "Infrastructure".

As a result, it happened impossible: the business plan was canceled. Moreover, during "Antigelty" The campaign was born MICA, the Association of Protection of the Island of Misali (Misali Island Conservation Association), which invented a completely new approach to solving environmental issues on Zanzibar.

Cases of nature in these places and without hotels were sensible. That fish that feeds almost the entire archipelago has become significantly less in the mid-1990s – in particular, due to the fact that local steel more often use special minor networks as well "good old" dynamite. At the same time, fishermen would seem to understand: pulling out today from the water twice or three times "biomass", In a long term, they lead a subpople under themselves.

In this situation, MICA has established a special protective zone around Misali. In the center of her fishing is now completely prohibited. In other sectors, it is strictly observed for the amount and quality of the gear, and the production quota is limited to an acceptable number for ecosystem.

Of course, from the very beginning there was a lot of people who wanted to circumvent the rules of the Marine Reserve. And effectively protecting his clocks appeared impossible. And then the Association "Made a move Kone": attracted to the fight for wildlife the authority of Islam.

In a brochure, a common MICA among imams, who are taught in rural schools, as many as 37 Sur Koran are attracted to explanation – why the environment should be preserved. There is detailed about the responsibility of a person for this Allah planet. "Environmental good news" spread and during Friday prayer, and in general, with each convenient case in rustic meetings, which all local politics issues are solved in Suakhilsk culture.

Success did not make himself wait.

No corals – no fish!

In the school class, located in the middle of the village of NDO on Fundo Island, unbearably stuffy, although the building is open from all sides and windows on the windows, naturally, no. All parties, benches and window sills are closed with kids in neglected syneblem forms. Responsible for education Officer MICA, Mbark Mousse Omar, invited us to the lesson of Islamic ecetition.

Boys and girls closely monitor how video recorder and TV are connected to the generator. There is no electricity or water supply on Fundo, therefore the very appearance of equipment – Sensation.

"Everything is in the Quran – Mbarka is beginning to be a classic formula – and, of course, it is written about how we treat nature". Then he writes Arabic letters one of the seur on the board: it is talking about what people committed "Bad Acts" on earth and under water and that they will now have to feel the results of the deed.

The guys easily read this text – from an early age, even the Latin alphabet and the Latin alphabet, who today enjoys Suahili, and "sacred" Arab.

Next, Mbaruk talks about the fact that creation is one and indivisibly and cannot be unpunished from it "pull out" Not a single detail, and about equilibrium, Misana, which should be maintained between all living beings. All this is accompanied by the instructive pampers of the underwater world on the screen, which in the class cause undisguised delight. "If it takes care of all this, then the ocean will still feed your grandchildren and grandchildren of your grandchildren. Destroy corals – the same thing that dump bombs on their mango trees. Who of you would do it?" And moving to English, already for us, guests, he sums up with a smile: "NO TREE – NO MOGO; No Coral – NO Fish. "

Having finished lesson, Mbarkov calls everyone for a walk. Since the hour came, we go around the beach. Red sand reflects the dazzling light of the midday sun. At each step, dozens of tiny crabs run out in different directions to jump into it again. To meet us already wanda women who gathered from the edge of the water what she left, retreating. "Catch" It is placed in the buckets, which they carry on the African custom on their heads, but at our request, the vessels are descended and exhibited for review. In them – both octopuses for which waves of different colors run, and "Porcelain" shells and dozen coral fish that did not have time for the drowning sea. Especially from all this diverse and peculiar wealth of the face of the body. Angular, similar to the perfect form. Creation of tiny fins and solid inner shells, extremely touching, but little similar to a living being. "Tropical Sardin, swallowing a cans", – Male notices our accompanied.

In general, the water area between Pepper, Unguja and the continent is among the most biologically saturated areas of all Oceans of the planet. Only near Fundo and Misali live 40 types of corals and over 250 species of fish. In the Pembal Channel, the depth of which reaches 2,000 meters, and large guests are found regularly: sharks, marliners, dolphins, whales.

Sand, sun, water, fertility – where else you know how to teach children "live and give live another"? There are some biotopes in the world, such a epithet "Paradise". On the way to a specially protected beach, where rare sea turtles once in the year of the lunar at night, the eggs are laying, Mbarka tells the story in such a spirit. "Long ago one famous saint named Hatra came here. He asked fishermen to give him a rug for prayers, because I wanted to fulfill my holy duty. But no carpet has never been. Then Hutra dropped his knees right on his bare land, saying that all this island is similar to a prayer rug, and even the edge of it is accurately directed to Mecca. So the island acquired its name: "I melt Msala", What means "like a prayer rug", Misali".

This legend was still told to us more than once, and in different versions and under different circumstances. In fact, the diversity of biological species, cultural and historical influences makes the entire archipelago look like a skoloty multicolor carpet. So he will be, if, of course, future tourists are not "flooded". As for the local, then there is a lot of things so that they caught the Sanzibarsky Islands to the Spring and their unique, there are no more wealth in the world anywhere else.

UNHEGUN – Temple and Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism in Beijing

UNHEGUN – Temple and Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism in Beijing

Russian tourists are rarely visited by the Buddhist Temple of UNHEGUN in Beijing. It is for this reason that I am writing about him in a blog, and not in the main cycle of articles about China on the site. There is a lot of interesting sights in Beijing, and this place is often not included in the travel programs precisely for lack of time.

And the place is really interesting. His name is translated as the "Palace of Peace and Harmony". Now this is the current temple and the monastery of Tibetan Buddhism with more than 300-year-old stories.

History of the temple of the UNHEGUN

This complex of buildings was erected in 1694, and then it was not supposed to be used as a Buddhist temple. Here lived court eunuchs of the Forbidden City. Later, the residence of the Crown Prince was located here – the future emperor UNCHEN.

When Junzhen reigned in 1722, he made his former monastery residence. Junhagun acquired the imperial status. Roofs on the roofs were replaced with turquoise on yellow, and yellow color meant that this place belongs to the emperor. In 1735, Emperor Junzhen died, and he was buried here.

The emperors of the Qing Dynasty cared for the world in the country. This place performed the functions of the merge of Chinese and Tibetan cultures. Tibetan and Mongolian Lama lived here, fulfilling the role of Tibet and Mongolia ambassadors.

So it lasts until 1949, when the Tiananmen Square Mao Zedong proclaimed the creation of the PRC. Then the temple was closed. He even wanted to demolish, but helped the personal intervention of the premiere of the State Administrative Council (Government) of the PRC – Zhou Egnlay.

In 1981, the monastery and the temple earned again, and now UNHEGUN is very popular with tourists. Here they love to carry excursion groups, since the price of the entrance is small, the place is interesting and go here near.

How to get

In the Temple of Yunhagun it is easy to drive to the Metro Beijing. The first option is to reach the Yonghegong station (Yunhagun) line 2. It is better to go to the ‘C’ output and go south about 400 meters. You will see the monastery, it is difficult to confuse it with something.

The second option is to go to Yonghegong station (Yunhagun), but already on the fifth subway line. Here go to the ‘C’ output and find yourself next to the monastery.

What’s the cover charge

Entrance to the Junhagun temple costs 25 Chinese yuan, regardless of the season.

Working hours

From April to October – from 9-00 to 16-30.

From November to March – from 9-00 to 16-00.

How much time plan to visit

If you look fast, then count for one hour. If you want to see everything in detail, then count on two hours.

What to look inside – architecture and inscription

First of all, pay attention to the architecture of buildings. This is a mixture of Chinese and Tibetan styles. At first glance, it is difficult to notice, outwardly the buildings look quite in Chinese. But you need to look. You will notice Tibetan turrets on the roofs and screwed round shape.

Pay attention to the blue plates with the names of the pavilions. You will see the inscriptions at once in four languages ​​- Chinese, Tibetan, Mongolian and Manchur. Why such a set?

Chinese hieroglyphs – it is logical, here comments are superfluous. Tibetan characters also do not cause questions, because this is a school monastery Gelug Tibetan Buddhism. Manchurian characters are present due to the origin of the emperors of Qing, because they were not Chinese, but were manchurs. Mongols also confess Tibetan Buddhism, and this is their temple too.

Main pavilions

UNHEGUN Temple Complex Built on Feng Shui Principles. It has a rectangular shape with the entrance in the south and exit in the north. All major buildings are located along the central axis of the South-north of 480 meters long. In its configuration, it is very similar to the Forbidden City, only smaller.

There are five main pavilions here.

Hall of Heavenly Kings

This is the southernmost pavilion. In the center of the hall is the statue of the Buddha Maitrei, and on the sides there are four sculptures of the kings of the sky.

Hall of harmony and world

This is the main building of the UNHEGUN monastery, and, accordingly, the biggest. Here are the statues of three buddes of different times. In the center of Shakyamuni – the present, on the right of Cashiapa Mantang – the past and left Maitreya – the future.

Along the walls you will see 18 statues of arghats. The fresco in this hall shows Bodhisatat Avalokiteshwaru. Now I will not tell about who it is. We talked about it in the cycle of articles about Buddhism, the link was higher on this page.

Hall of eternal protection

It was in this pavilion that Emperor Junzhen lived, being another prince. It was here that there was a coffin with his body after death. Now here is the statue of Buddha Bhaishajaguaguru. This Buddha is considered a patron of medicine.

Hall of the Wheel of the Law

This room is used for ceremonies and reading sacred texts. Here you will see a statue of the Tsongkapy – the famous Tibetan philosopher and the founder of the Gelug School. It is in this room that is the most interesting place for tourists – this is the hill of five hundred arghats. All 500 figures of enlightened arhats are made of five metals – gold, silver, copper, iron and tin.

Hall of ten thousand joy

Here is the statue of the Buddha Maitrei 18 meters in height, carved from a solid slicer of sandalwood. In fact, it is even more, as another 8 meters of sculpture is underground.

The grandiose looks like! In the temple and the UNHEGUN monastery it is worth going only to look at this statue. This is a gift from Dalai Lama III Emperor Tsyanlun. This statue was brought from Tibet to Beijing for three years. She even deserved her place in the Guinness Book of Records.

I highly recommend watching the temple of UNHEGUN. Read other blog entries and our main articles (Links below).

Universal Studios Hollywood – Entertainment Park for All! Part 3

Universal Studios Hollywood – Entertainment Park for All! Part 3

If you want to have time to see everything, it is better to lay on a visit to Universal Studios all day – From opening before closing. It only seems to be very long, you will not even be able to get tired, time will fly quickly. On some attractions, it may want to go through a couple, and then the top three times (we had it).

If time is limited, then it may be relevant to purchase Front of Line Pass, which will help avoid queues. For example, to sit on the tram and go to the studio tour, we had to wait in the queue of minutes forty.

If the time is more than enough, you can buy a two-day ticket, especially since it is not much more expensive that for 1 day.

Where to eat?

Since Universal Studios will have to spend a lot of time, the food issue is very and very relevant. Within the park itself there are a lot of cafes, fast foods, pizzerias, in general, a place where you can have lunch or snack on an ambulance hand, there will be. Here are just prices, naturally, tourist. I remember even the water was unreasonably expensive. More or less adequate price tag can be found in Panda Express, in any case, in those in which we were, it was and did not come to universal, so it might be that there are also high prices). We took with them all sorts of snacks, fruits and a lot of water, which turned out to be very much by the way, because it was mildly hot.

By the way, the organizers of the Universal Studios Park argue that he – The coolest place in all Los Angeles. The fans are placed everywhere, sprayers and other cooling devices rave))

Continuing the theme of food, it is worth noting that there is a lot of cafes and on Citywalk, that’s just to get into them will be able to either before, or after visiting the park, because with a ticket you can go only once.

Accommodation next to Universal Studios Park

If someone wants to live under the side of Universal Studios, then can fulfill its desire. In walking distance from the park there are two hotels, however, not the cheapest:

With the help of Piskovik, Waterland can pick up more budget variants in the vicinity:

As Alternative option Housing search I recommend paying attention to the site airbnb. This is a resource on which the owners offer to rent their housing (rooms, apartments, houses). We have more than once found excellent accommodation in terms of price and quality ratio and always remained satisfied (including in Los Angeles, read the details).

One of the most attractive equestrian routes to the Crimea – to rise from the village "Radish" to Mount Demerji: along the "valleys of ghosts" with fancy rocks, past the cracked stone rolled (here during the Crimean earthquake of 1927, huge boulders fell as for the village) and past Journal’s waterfall.

Upstream

Upstream

Nostalgia. She mastering you quickly and unnoticed. Captures entirely after landing in Sheremetyevo. One tense thought beats in temple: back, back. In carefree life, to the sea that flashes light turquoise at the shore and caressing blue-purple on the horizon. And behind the back – reddish low mountains on the background of a bright blue sky without a single cloud. Enjoyed the view – and deep. With splashes and gamas or without, with a mask or tube or without – no difference. And so you know that you will meet: corals of gentle yellow, pink and lilac shades, and between them of these wonderful yuriki creatures, it is clear that by a man called by a crazy word "a fish". Their true essence is that in the title stands after hyphena: "angel", "butterfly", "clown", "Napoleon", In extreme cases "Sultanka".

Red sea. Mecca divengistov. Beginners and knowledgeable sense in the exploration of the unexplored persistence of underwater reef. Student in numerous diving centers under the guidance of instructors and subscriber adventure on the boat. Living in small resort towns and settled in chic Sharmel Sheikh.

Town "Thousands of minarets". The city of thousands of Likov. Cairo. On the steps – up – on the Citadel Salladin (local Eiffel Tower). And half an hour you caress your eyes. Openwork minarets of mosques Mohammed Ali and Sultan Capaun. Almost at the horizon itself in a light haze – silhouettes of the pyramids. The largest of them, the pyramid of Heops, still remains the most impressive creation of human hands. Lie those who, risking to go inside, snatch at the exit, depicting full indifference. Wear, allegedly indifferent to the Golden Sarcophage of the Young Pharaoh Tutankhamon in the National Museum of Cairo. And behind the walls of the museum, the city lives its noisy life. As a hive, Han el-Khalili craftsmen buzzes – the largest in the Middle East. Century go. Almost nothing here is changing. Everything passes. And only the Neal is calm, like thousands of years ago, carries its waters to the Mediterranean Sea.

Journey to deep yourself

There are situations where you need to focus on yourself and your closest. Not that. But in most cases. Not so that not to notice all the surrounding. But only in the sense of scenery. And if this desire comes, you need to make one step. Or exactly so much to run up on the lady. And swear. In principle, no matter where. But it was better if it were that it was to spend slightly (that is, not forgetting about himself) delighted eyes. Or even stop for a while and remember the feeling of real estate and unfamiliar until the earth. Why it all started, no longer important. It is important who remembered that you can like this, impoverish and travel lazily. It is said that more than a hundred years ago some English aristocrats swam. Lit, probably, but beautiful. And back "descended" On the Nile of the Queen of the detective genre Agat Christ. And even used her impressions in one of the novels. That plot just unfolds against the background of the ancient Egyptian temples located from Luxor to Aswan on the shores "Mothers of all rivers".

In the middle of the second millennium BC on the place of Luxor was the capital of Egypt. Now this is a city-museum under the open-air, where on the eastern bank of the Nile in "The city is alive" Two Grand Temple – Luxor and Karnaki spread. Each of the rules of Egypt Pharaohs sought to give the temple buildings Karnak even more greatness and brilliance than its predecessors. More than two thousand years have lasted this competition. Temples were rebuilt, the inscriptions were rewriting again. Legend says that Homer is impressed by the battle songs of his famous "Iliad".

Stop the second if the whole life of the pharaohs proceeded on the eastern bank of the Nile, then on his West Bank, in "city ​​of dead", their bodies acquired eternal peace. There, at the foot of the horseshoe rock, and the monumental funeral temple of the mysterious queen Hatshepsut spread. And in the vicinity of Luxor, in the valley of kings under the thickness of stones and the sand Archaeologists found 42 tomb of pharaohs. Treasures of the tombs were looted in antiquity. But you can admire the bizarre wall paintings, preserved the brightness of the paints to the present day.

Stop the third end item of the cruise – Aswan, the most southern city of the Pharaohs times, is not only famous thanks to the gigantic dam. On the island of Elefantin, the temple of Khnuma, the spouse of the goddess Satis – Patron Nile. The temples of the island of fillets, which were flooded after the construction of the old dam, were cut by 40 thousand blocks and transferred to the next island. Now at the walls of the magnificent temple of Goddess Isyda passes the evening show "Sound and light".
