Asked the same bodyguard Uncle: "dear, where's the toilet?"-"where left buses"-waved it away with his hand. Do nothing run down the stairs and to the ground, wind Squall, snow. We run 500 meters)))) reaches a brick structure, Oh Uncle-parasite ... Toilet is closed! Oh and I had to ease into the snowdrift, styduha!

    Many years ago, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then. Journey to Arkhyz was a fairy tale. The bus stayed away on the Court and then we hiked. With a take a box lunch because not allowed to make a fire, not to char the mirrors at the Observatory. We camped on the Bank of the mountain river for lunch and walked next to wild animals. Today everything is different, very nicely, but is no longer the old exotics. Wonderful mountain air, but terms of the fruits of our civilisation.

    We went there on purpose, hoping to see something interesting. In fact neotaplivoemoe you enter into the room where it is very cold, but oh well, so it should be for a unique telescope. Aunt meets you, which offers to buy cards with beautiful constellations, but they are not made in this Observatory, and with space satellites. There are of course a few pics and local telescope, but they did not advertise. Then goes the Guide, which frankly tired of telling about all this, he frankly admits. The excursion is so primitive that it becomes funny, show all on school posters, it is not known what year of manufacture, which are fixed on the wooden shtaketnikah. Guide confused speech, first one, then without completing the other. In the panoramic window visible telescope and all. How everything works, shown on a tiny tv, then a couple of words about the founder and that Darwin invented the heresy about monkeys and humans. Then offer to watch some free movies in a small cinema, but wishing no TC remind you very cool. The toilet is on the street, 100 meters from the Observatory.
