Portugal. Port, port, port, porter.




Of course, someone does not agree with me, but I think Porto - the quintessence of Portugal. In contrast to Lisbon, which is in search of greatness lost some integrity, Porto clearly behaves in the same style. The same Eiffel and his partner, Theophile Seyrig accurately grasped the essence of stimpankovskuyu city long before the appearance of the steampunk. Their iron monsters rising from the ancient city walls, not only to connect the two river banks, but are crucial to its image.





Certainly, in Porto there azulezhu, ubiquitous portuguese painted clay tiles, and abandoned homes with broken windows, and landfills under the windows of houses and mazes of streets, and lovely trams, and flea markets with old magazines and records. But he has and distinguishing features.



First and foremost, I would call a bridge Luiz First. It is this "inverted Eiffel Tower is one of the most memorable attractions of Porto. Do not be misleading, my metaphor - a bridge built just is not the Eifel and Seyrig in 1886. Eiffel also built a bridge Dona Maria Pia nine years earlier.

Outskirts of Europe. Impressions from a trip to eastern Europe




Outskirts of Europe. Impressions from a trip to Eastern Europe
The trip by train from Sofia to Pleven fascinating: this railway line, winds on the ledges of cliffs, is considered one of the most impressive in Bulgaria. 


In Eastern Europe the right to travel by train. In its hallways, worn-out and these relatives are still living that have long passed. Exacerbated by a sense of some special thin fabrics that remained common to the countries of this region for many years. Someone ironically calls the combination of these sensations "scoop." Negative if this description? In many ways, and for many - yes. And at the same time, for someone it - nostalgic.


The majority of Russian-speaking passengers, which can be found in the international train from Moscow to Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia remained strong relationships with independent countries now: someone from the Soviet era lived there for permanent residence, someone after the fall of the eastern Block abroad were relatives, friends and colleagues. Someone in the former Soviet bloc spent his carefree childhood. The train everyone - has a history. Train filters of people associated with the life of Eastern Europe from tourists and casual travel, preferring mostly airplanes. He crosses the border, shows in the windows of films about the past, changing landscapes as slides in a projector, but leaves the idea that the glass is still close to the world.

In the train Sofia-Moscow can meet amazing characters.

BULGARIA. KAMIENNA GORA


Bulgaria. Kamienna Gora

When was the last time was in Haskovo, driving along a street, noticed the store work clothes on the shelves of which there were several models of shoes, according to the form suitable for tourism. Naturally, I stopped and went to look. It turned out that some models, it seemed to me, very suitable for trekking, bad, that those models that I liked were the wrong size, or to order (look in the catalog). Talking about shoes, gradually switched to all sorts of other topics (interesting places in Bulgaria, fishing, hunting, photos, etc.). Met and exchanged coordinates. Dimitar (chef company) was very interesting and sociable person. When I was about to leave, he looked at me with a sly look and zagovornicheskim voice: "Come on, something interesting to show you ...".


We went down on the floor below and he showed me two rooms. At the same wherever we can, on the floor and on shelves, on tables - lay the stones. Such a variety of types and forms I have seen for the first time. It was very interesting to consider a collection of comments by the owner. In another room there is equipment for stone processing and collection is waiting for their turn. Multiple photos on a theme.
It's in his office.

Why to go to Baku. Azerbaijan

Instead of beginning

Took first in the eleventh year journey.

Unlike previous trips, this time in one city has been allocated nearly six full days. This new format for me to explore the area fully justified.
Despite the increased costs of accommodation, time increases to a comfortable visit to the city and its attractions. Do not have anywhere to run early in the morning, afraid that something will not have time. No hassles. Came, stayed, slept, and then go out into the city to breathe his air.
