In Constantine - the third largest city in Algeria after the capital and coastal Oran, I got on the eve of the football match Algeria - Belgium and the whole city was in anticipation of the holiday.
So, a review of the last continent, where I visited, is distant and difficult to access for Russians in Australia. There is an opinion that this is a very expensive country, even in the “Eagle and Lattice”, each series about Australia begins with the moans leading to the fact that they have to live half-starving. In fact, it turned out that at the current exchange rate, Australia is a country of the middle price category, something like Spain or Greece. Given the presence of numerous low-cost flights there from Southeast Asia, we get a great place to travel (well, if not a visa).
As you know, only mountains that were not better can be better than mountains. From the school lessons of geography, I knew that the Urals were, in fact, mountains too, although for some reason no one was serious about them. And on the map, Ural is temptingly located not far from Moscow, considering that I have already seen the Caucasus a bit. In this post, this was the main reason why this trip was started, and an attempt to convince skeptics that the Urals are completely worthy of the attention of travelers. Under the cut, there is a high-mountain lake and the Zyuratkul range, the Taganai National Park, and also the lakes Turgoyak and Bannoye (Yakty-Kul), which are popular with local tourists.
Those who have not been to Hong Kong, as well as to me before this trip, this place seems to be a sort of megalopolis of some skyscrapers, with an incredible number of cars and people, entirely in advertising and smog. Naturally, such naive delusions are easy to dispel, one has only to unfold the map, where it is clear that urban areas occupy only a small part of Hong Kong, the rest is lush tropical greenery and numerous sandy beaches.
