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.
