But now for the next sharp turn in full swing with might and main night life: cars speeding along the roads, colorful local gossip aunt in the stall, on a small embankment gradually flaniruyut small flocks of tourists from Russia.

The air becomes viscous circle quiet, barely audible distant chiming bells, we are in the suburbs.
