English narrative

Рассказ по-русски

12-Jun-2006 -- Это был день России. Мы отправились на поиск точки на велосипедах. Поскольку это было достаточно далеко от Пензы, мы преодолели основной путь на фургоне. После пересели на велосипеды. Нам пришлось потратить очень много времени на поиск дороги, поскольку мы не взяли никаких карт (чтобы усложнить задачу :) ). Точку мы нашли уже вечером, поэтому фотографии получились слабого качества.

English narrative

12-Jun-2006 -- It was Russia day. We have gone in search of the point on bicycles. As it was far enough from Penza, we have overcome the basic way on a van. Afterwards we moved on bicycles. We had to spend a lot of time searching for the road, as we have not taken any maps (to complicate the task:)). We found the point in the evening, therefore the photos have turned out of poor quality.
