The weather was lousy: cold. Well that was not yet rain. Since my last visit in the Park (parks, because two of them on different sides of the street) several new monuments. In General, all built impressive and beautiful. But whether the weather was horrible, really not good energy only desires to go walk in the Park "unnecessarily" I didn't exactly occur.

  • Nicely equipped, new tracks. With roads even fallen leaves on the side of the vacuum cleaner to blow away. Beautiful Memorial plaques. And yet this is the only place on Earth where you can see the monument to cyganjam.
