Russia at sea

155

This is Nice. View from the sea. From a distance it is beautiful. But the whole beach is a large pebble, which is simply impossible to walk on, and the strong surf hits the feet with cobblestones. So ... "not all that glitters is gold!"
Vacation in summer, how lucky!

What's the luck? We don't know yet ...
Maybe in lying belly up to the top,
And build a palace of sand.

"Memories of the future summer", Arvacheva Lyubov

Russia as it is. Perhaps, it will be necessary to start with memories again.

For the first time I got to Anapa in 1968. And then there were a lot of people (I mean vacationers), but for some reason there were not enough apartments for rent, and my mother and I spent the first night at the bus station.

Not so now: there are no less people, if not more. The water in Anapa, in my opinion, especially on the city beach, is half urine, but ... Around the announcement: for rent, for rent, for rent ...

25 km from Anapa


Well, and already 25 km from Anapa, similar inscriptions are found on every corner. And the conditions are not at all the same as in '68 ... Not huts with amenities on the street, but hotel rooms with TV and air conditioning.


But this is already our resting place here in Russia. Original, isn't it? There is a sea and a sandy beach with dunes for 25 km. There are two estuaries, and behind them there is also a third, huge, while people live on the isthmus between them. You look from above at the surf line and the sand and inevitably remember the movie "The Last Inch". Photo by the author, like everyone else ...


"Our" beach 25 kilometers from Anapa ...

Although the memory of the past lives on to this day! Yes, yes, and we met her right at the camp site we had chosen.

As you know, the most terrible problem of modern man is the problem of choice. In this regard, primitive people were happier than us. They had no choice, and they acted "like everyone else" as they should. We have it. In this case, it was expressed in the fact that there were three "streets" at this camp site: two remained from Soviet times, and one was new. On the new alley, in two rows, there were actually eco-houses made of pine logs, with hot and cold water, a refrigerator, a TV and an air conditioner, which we rarely even turned on, it was so cool inside them even in the heat.


Our family custom is never to rest without each other! And so for 47 years!

On the middle street, the rooms had air conditioning and a refrigerator, but they were, so to speak, old construction. But the typical rooms of the Soviet era went even further: there is no air conditioning, a corridor system with showers and toilets at the end. There was also a guest room for arriving and departing, so that they could put things there and wait for the transfer to the station or to the airport.


"The weary sun tenderly said goodbye to the sea ..."

It turns out that "the USSR is still partially alive."

The room had broken furniture with rooms painted in black and lacked a refrigerator and air conditioning. In the neighboring, not a guest, but a living room, the door was therefore wide open, covered with a sheet, and there was a game of cards. That's even how! On the sea, which is literally a stone's throw away, people did not go, but sat in the heat and played. Well, what is it to us?

They folded their things and went out to wait for the car, but someone lived there?

In particular, the girls from the service staff.

- Is it hot there?

- It's hot, but on the sea!

However, remembering our youth and the first trip to the south with my wife in 1978, we would probably also be delighted. I was surprised by something else. Many came to rest here in very expensive cars, but settled in such cheap and hot rooms. But… but on expensive cars.


Already evening. But people are still sorry to part with the sea!

As far as eco-houses are concerned, it would only be possible to live and live in them.

“We,” the lady administrator told us, “will increase their number, but we will gradually demolish all this squalor”.

And rightly so! People should live and relax in houses, not huts.

Food.

Again, pleasantly surprised. Typical Soviet canteen of the regional committee of the CPSU. Everything is tasty and dietary. Solyanka - so hodgepodge, there are a lot of olives. Goulash is like goulash, but cutlets are made from meat, not bread. Tea - whatever you want: black, green, hot, cold ... That is, you can cook even in the dining room, simply and deliciously. Such a kitchen is especially convenient for children. Already with them, eat them here, absolutely nothing will happen.

However, you can take a room without food, very cheap, and go to dinner in the dining room opposite.

And along the road that runs along the sea and along which all the tourist centers and boarding houses are built, there are all kinds of restaurants, shops and cafes. So you will definitely not stay hungry!

There are a lot of wine shops - here you can find local wines from Abrau-Dyurso and chacha, and cognac ... However, we did not see the men who were "dying to death", and this is very pleasing.

Defense threat



This is not ours. These are the Germans in Berlin. And do not take an example from them. Ah, they are sick! So many sick?


All overweight women are cashiers from the Pyaterochka store. So one of the VO readers wrote to me ... So many cashiers?

But another sight did not please at all.

Mountains of billowing flesh! Five years ago, it was also full of fat men and fat women, but today their number has clearly increased. In general, it is understandable: after all, Krasnodar Territory, people, so to speak, are inclined.

But there were also cars with Novosibirsk license plates ... And there were people in them, the volumes of which were clearly off scale. So, if somewhere, someone in our country, as some here at VO claim, is starving, then this is clearly not here.

Women with arms as thick as my leg, men, whose copulatory organs were completely hidden under overhanging bellies ... Oh, you can't wish that to an evil enemy.

And, okay, women of age who do not care and who have long begun to overeat at dinner. No! Young ones with extra pounds - in an ever-increasing progression. What will happen to them in old age?

And finally, the worst thing is the children. Children who have grown fat due to the efforts of their parents.

“Oh, you are my ham! - laments one grandmother of many pounds over her grandson-pig and immediately shoves him a pie. - Eat, child, delicious pie.


Adjarian-style khachapuri not far from the camp site was baked by the Adjarians themselves. Tasty! But often you don't need to eat it!


And you could also not go to the dining room, but order any dish from a local restaurant with delivery ... Well, you can sometimes pamper yourself ...

But the problem of being overweight is directly related to the country's defense capability.

How much excess food is eaten? How much extra money is spent on the treatment of such individuals? How much excess fuel is burned on the transportation of frank fat?

And how much money is spent on paying sick leave due to diseases that arise due to excess weight?

The same covid more readily strikes fat people ...

And everything is there! There are sites dedicated to healthy eating, there are books, there are dietitians. Finally, there are tons of healthy foods to eat. Oh, is she dear? Well, no one has canceled the same oatmeal, as well as a glass of kefir for the night. That is, in words, we condemn the same Americans - "oh, they are bad", and with regard to food (and not only food), we only take an example from them, as if we are participating in a competition: which of us is generally thicker.


Over the past five years, many boarding houses and tourist centers have been built here for every taste!


The most bizarre architecture!


Others are just pretentious! And even with swans ...

Note that there are "quiet" camp sites (read reviews on the Internet), and there are those where loud music - boo-boo-boo - sounds from early morning until late at night. I was always surprised at people without nerves (or without brains) capable of withstanding such a noise effect on vacation, but anyway, they are.


Initiative people appeared in the local village ...


And this is what they do with their children!

As always, the city, or rather the village beach, turned out to be an interesting place. There are a lot of people, people literally sit on top of each other and are pushed in the water with a solid mass of living. Children scream and squeal, their mothers spank them, fathers calmly "rest" with their belly up. A familiar picture to all of us, isn't it?


Excess pounds, alas, very many have them! Although in this photo there seem to be not so many of them. But ... it's a real deal!

It was repeated here as well.

But the most amazing thing is that it is worth only two hundred meters away from this place, as there is nothing like that, and people come across fifty meters from one another.

Well, so as not to get through, eh? Shake excess fat?

But no - splash on the sand and ... "Beer, riba, churchkhela, baklava!" - women-peddlers come and endow you with all this good. And there are also booths with cotton candy, ten kinds of soft ice cream, pasties, the invariable shashlik ... Phew! You are simply amazed at the terrible poverty that befell our people after 1991 ...


In the park I saw a monument to Lenin. Finally, he is the person he should have been, and not the “microcephalus-arnold” that “Vuchetich himself” sculpted for our Penza!


The inscription on the monument

But there were also pleasant impressions.

About pleasant


Many young people who lived at our camp went in for sports early in the morning. Children from children's sports camps were taken to the beach, and many. At the same time, they were trained in black, and this is the only way, in my opinion, is it necessary.

We went out to the sea at six o'clock in the morning: a woman with a dog - a charming spitz - was meeting us. I made a doggie - "ah" right on the sand - here, as in Brighton, there is sand and dunes everywhere. And I wouldn’t say a word if she covered all “this” with sand and moved on. At noon, it gets so hot that it becomes sterile. But with her gloved hand she took all “this”, put it in a bag and went to the urn.

"Where are you from, I ask, - before that I saw this only in Girona in Spain."

And she told me: "And everyone in St. Petersburg does exactly that!"

Here! I have always said that St. Petersburg is not only our second capital, but also a city of high culture, and that is exactly how it turned out!


Very interesting places here. For example, what kind of bird we met in local floodplains. This is an Egyptian ibis!

I flew in a small aviation”, Moreover, the flight organizer told me that in the summer he and his comrades (and there are a lot of Russian champions among them!) In this way earn money, but in the winter they teach children how to fly, and for free! Having learned which Internet edition I represent, I said that there are many difficulties on the way of spreading such light-engine aviation in the Russian Federation (for some reason, nothing goes without difficulties), but now they overcome them and try not only for me, but and for the future.


The bottom of the estuary, turned into an airfield!

And this is one of the planes there with the author on board. Since the control on it is double, I was asked to curl my legs, do not touch the pedals and not grab the handle between my legs. They also asked not to be photographed before the flight, but only after! So here I am after returning to earth.

I really liked flying on such an airplane!


Very modern design, isn't it?

It is interesting that they set up an airfield for themselves at the bottom of a dried out estuary.


The planes were bright, very modern, with a nose wheel, and took off into the sky very steeply, almost without a run, that is, they hardly even ran 50 meters.

Once again I thought about the military purpose of such an aircraft, about ready-made, in fact, combat drones and "air taxi".

And besides, I learned that they are produced here in Taganrog. 4,5 million rubles is a new device, 2,5 million rubles is used, but only an experienced person can buy it, because it will have to be disassembled and brought to mind, otherwise it is dangerous to buy it and go straight to the sky! But the motors for them are still imported.


Aerial view of the city beach. A few steps to the side and, as you can see, there are fewer and fewer people!

In short, more than two weeks in July-August flew by very quickly.

And it was a good vacation, although not as interesting as the one that I had in the summer before, but quiet and calm, which one should also occasionally arrange for oneself.

    Thanks for the story and the photo, only ... but where is the sea ... I thought I would look at dawn, sunset ...
    After all, in the sky there is only talk about the sea and about the sunset.
    They talk about how damn cool it is to watch a huge fireball melt into the waves.
    And the barely visible light, as if from a candle, burns somewhere in the depths.

        And women for some reason are fat at every step.

        Because they work in the five. Sedentary work, poor quality food, stress.

        That is, your question can be interpreted as "why has the number of obese women increased?"
        I connected this with my work at Pyaterochka. In an ironic way, but with a grain of realism. And you just turned my mind around.

          In childhood, probably everyone was taken to Anapa. I have a faded color photo somewhere in my album: my father is supporting me, sitting on an iron dolphin, fixed in the surf.

        - And there I will lie all my life
        On a beach as salty as a vobla.

        I do not regret my life,
        And the seashore foams
        With its irrepressible longing.

          Yes, the weather is not very good ... but all weather has its own charm. At the end of October 2019, I looked at the Golitsyn trail, in Novy Svet, for once I was there alone, not in season. It was in the morning, it was foggy, the sky was gray like a dolphin's back ... And then the dolphins showed me a way to imperceptibly swim up to the school, they turned over on their backs and in such a camouflage form appeared in the center of a school of fish. It's a pity you can't upload a video, the volume is large

            Can I link to the video at least in a personal? (Any cloud service can do this)

            And more about the weather: at that moment, which is captured in the Gurzuf photos, a really suddenly cold wind was able to drag gloomy clouds through the mountains. And it turned out very strange - the air is 19 degrees, and the water in the sea is 24!

        Hmm .. Well, let's just say, at one time I had to drive around the Krasnodar Territory with geological parties and had to get acquainted with some of its features, which are not advertised, so as not to frighten people. Well, firstly, the whole region is dotted with animal burial grounds with zoonoses - Anthrax, glanders, foot and mouth disease, brucellosis. Yes, yes, precisely with that "foot and mouth disease", which is in the "Caucasian Captive". From time to time, cases of anthrax are noted even now in the villages of the Krasnodar Territory, they usually do not write about them or I inform them in passing, as, for example, about the case in Raevskaya. In addition, during Soviet times, some cities were periodically quarantined for ... cholera, typhoid and enterovirus. Unfortunately, enterovirus infection is now just a scourge for children and adults in the resorts of the region. In addition, few people know, but it was in the floodplains of Temryuk and Anapa that there were foci of malaria and Crimean hemorrhagic fever, a fever that is similar in symptoms and course of the disease to Ebola. And now there is a new attack - the Nile mosquito has appeared, which can spread Dengue fever. Further, ixodid ticks. There are a huge number of them. In addition to encephalitis and Lyme disease, they carry tick-borne rickettsioses. Now about environmental troubles: for example, the Anapka River. Few people know that this river has a peculiarity: in spring and summer it flows from the sea to the floodplain, and in autumn and winter to the sea. This feature is used by "enterprising" local residents who have mastered horizontal drilling to discharge wastewater from numerous private boarding houses and private buildings into it. In summer, the sewage system flows into the floodplain, and in winter into the sea into the bay, where it settles at the bottom and mixes with what is at the bottom. And in the summer, all this is troubled by the feet of vacationers and ... hello enterovirus. In fairness, I must say that the administration is struggling with this, but you yourself understand, not everything can be found, and this is Russia ... perhaps, it is possible to "negotiate" .. No, I do not want to turn away those who want to travel to the resorts of the Krasnodar Territory from traveling, especially since overseas resorts are full of nasty things, for example, subcutaneous shellfish on the beaches of Thailand, etc., just keep in mind. yes

    Yes, in general, the topic is long, and I would say it is very sad. The recreation industry has shrunk in the 90s so that it has disappeared. Although there are no reasons for this. Here is the author of a very venomous ride about the "poverty" of Russian vacationers. I'll also stick in 5 kopecks. I have a dacha not so far from Moscow, on the Oka. In the USSR, this entire area was entirely a sanatorium-resort, 4 recreation centers, 2 tourist centers, 2 pioneer camps ... There were two rest houses left, half exhausted. But about 5 years ago, one cedar was in advance. First I invested in a couple of houses, plus I rented the old building of the Palace of Culture, for a bar-restaurant-disco, well, despite the fact that the prices are more expensive than in Turkey, and there are no places, in January, they already book places for May, when the fact that it is expanding without stopping - and there are not enough places!
    The question is - there is both demand and money from people. There are the same abandoned camp sites. I don’t understand, no one needs money?

      It's simple - there are not many people who want to go to camp sites "with a shower at the end of the corridor and a toilet on the street."
      That is, you need to invest a lot of dough in the infrastructure - but not the fact that people will go without a chip (sea, mountains, waterfalls, chupacabra, finally, at least something ..).
      Therefore, no one rushes to invest in such camp sites ...

    -Vacation - in the summer, how lucky!
    “The boss calls the subordinate:“ Do you like warm beer? ”“ Of course not! ”“ And sweaty women? ”“ Brr, no, of course. ”“ So you go on vacation in December. “Do you like warm vodka?” “Yes!” “Do you like sweaty women?” “Yes!” “Okay, so you'll go for potatoes in the fall!”.
    Thanks to the author ... for not posting a photo of the Healing Beach.
    I was a long time ago (not a citizen of the Russian Federation) in Soviet times. It is clear that neither Sochi and therefore without a family (I don’t know how it is today) is simply boring.
    Well, some beaches have shallow water, like the Sea of ​​Azov.
    And the question to the author is that there were ancient Greek settlements nearby. How is it today?

        Vyacheslav, good evening. hi
        I visited Anapa once, in the early eighties. A children's resort, there are two liquor stores in the whole city, but that's okay, the beaches looked terrible - everything was filthy. We, in fact, were there on an expedition with archaeologists and crossed the beach by chance, taking a shortcut, but these impressions were enough. There were two expeditions: one in the city itself, the second on the closed territory of a former tank training ground (I don't remember the name of the neighboring village), so we lodged at the training ground, and we were poking around with the body of a Turkish tartan, which was washed in sand about ten meters from the coast. From there they already rushed to the Crimea to Belyaus, and then to their beloved Sevastopol.

        Glad you had a good rest! smile drinks

    In general, there are a couple of good points, but mostly discouragement and devastation. This is all sad. Especially the awareness of the fact that the whole region has no resources other than the passing tourist. And everyone - from the bosses of the sanatorium with broken furniture and the corridor system to the grandmother renting out a hut with amenities on the street - hope for only one thing: to earn enough in the summer to hold out for the winter, a fierce, hungry time. Here are the unfortunate hucksters with their pitiful goods ... Or else I would like to, by the way: as many jobs as possible in the city and away from the sea. You need a comparable source of resources to cut the city off from the sea. Because the ultimate goal is a cool room, a free toilet, a full refrigerator, and a beach without hucksters. In general, as in civilized countries. In the tourist spots of Florida, for example, you won't find this nasty obsessive service.

        If you look, you can find devastation and poverty anywhere, there would be a desire. :)
        While living in Russia, I have been to Vityazevo, Sukko, Anapa itself, Adler, Big Sochi, Gelendzhik more than once.
        If you go out to the central beach in Anapa - well, yes, the sea is overwhelmed, well, I agree with the author, I don't like it - don't swim, go 10 km to the side and swim even to the point of blue in the face.
        Who makes you.

        And about Nice, the author - there are 12 beaches only those about which I am aware.
        I myself have NEVER swam on the pebble. I was in Nice twice + 1 times in transit.
        There are beautiful sandy beaches there. And then ... it's not very good to compare Anapa even with Turkey. And even with Nice, even more so.
        So for all my patriotism, it is possible to relax at the Russian World Cup, but cheaper and better - in other places.
        I haven't been to Sevas after 2014, I can't say, but with the Ukrainians there was hell, of course.

          Well, it is important for Shpakovsky to remind readers how bad it was under the Union and how good it is now. This is a quirk. And about the beaches. Yes, I don't like pebbles either, and therefore we go mainly to Vityazevo.

            If we compare the standard of living, then I cannot speak for the whole union, but I was living with norms.
            Dad worked in a mine in Vorkuta, he pulled a coal in the face.
            The salary was 2200. This is when half of the country worked hard for 120 rubles. So I'm fine. He ate hearty, slept sweetly, visited the seas.
            But this is extremely brutal by my dad's hellish labor. May God grant him health.

            And now the rules are also living. The native country put in a pension as much as 37, because of the northern childhood and long cop experience.
            And besides, there is also the loot earned in the EU in an IT office, so life as a whole is a success.

However, this memory was useful to me! In the novel "Three from Ensk" the hero throws his Mauser into such a winter toilet and thinks that in the spring, as it all thaws, he will drown! And this is very vital. Life is made of little things.

                    In your novel, and in my life. I remember the face of a German who decided to relieve a great need in a roadside winter toilet. The need was seriously pressing, but how to cope with it in such conditions, the German could not figure out in any way and already began to panic. And then the translator is wandering around, hesitating to translate my instructions and the driver's instructions.

In general, the same negative like Chubais and other former Komsomol members. In addition, he has an off-scale conceit, but you understand that the deeper you boil in feces, the higher the ego.

We stopped in Egypt, although it is more expensive, but our service and the service of Egypt, Turkey cannot be compared. And next year we think either Altai or Kamchatka


      And in Crimea you can relax without a beach holiday. October can bring great weather and ... fishing.

    The sun shines and beats on vacation, the pompolit is going on vacation, on the street there is a crackling frost on vacation, smelly junk goes on vacation. Sochi is a velvet season. Although Sochi residents are now offended, Adler and Sirius have taken over vacationers. In good weather, there are still thousands of vacationers. Especially many families with kids-athletes from all over Russia. By cars from Bentley to Lada Grants. All parking lots are packed. Age from 4 years old to adults. Sports directions; Hockey, figure skating, curling, gymnastics, chess, fencing, ski jumping from this winter Formulas are a separate topic. The embankment will be altered, an international competition has already been announced. The winner, the architectural bureau will receive a prize and a contract. Scientific and educational activities are not forgotten. Over the years, 38 thousand children have been trained. For skiers of all stripes, there is Krasnaya Polyana. So that we live in off-season prices are generally ridiculous.

                    What happened to the collection?
                    I somehow managed to buy it all, but something and the collection no longer comes out and Pokrovsky himself has not written for a long time ...

      vodka in the garrison
      not sold

      My father served in Garovka and Vozzhaevka from the late 40s - until the first half of the 50s, navigator of the Li-2 squadron, was responsible for the consumption of anti-icing fluid (a tank of 40 liters of alcohol, flows onto the cockpit windows). No cognac with vodka was used in their regiment. He told how a fat general came to them with a check, his plane broke down, and he flew on his father's leaky LI-2 somewhere in winter. The general is fat, there were no fur boots of his size. When he froze, slipped him a log of fluid consumption, instantly pushed it.

    It's just that human memory is arranged, to cover up everything bad, difficult, otherwise you can go crazy. So it turns out that in the service all only had women, officers were taught life and ate vodka. If the army was like that, then there would be a line of those who wish to be cut off.

    otherwise I already have some kind of "warning".

    All this is nonsense, I had eight, there were two left, apparently written off "for length of service." And now it has become much more democratic than three years ago. smile

    Yes, you are not a birdwatcher. This is not an Egyptian ibis, it is its relative, called the ibis, Plegadis falcinellus.

    Goulash is like goulash, but cutlets are made from meat, not bread.

    Every man to his own taste. On the contrary, I don't like cutlets from one minced meat, especially if
    only minced beef. yes
    But there were also cars with Novosibirsk license plates ... And there were people in them, the volumes of which were clearly off scale. So, if somewhere, someone in our country, as some here at VO claim, is starving, then this is clearly not here.

    laughing Apparently all the "fat" ones from Novosibirsk left for Kuban and Rostov. I just returned from Gorny Altai, so there, on the contrary, in cars with Novosibirsk license plates, "tourists" were driving around, lean and athletic. Nowadays, for example, a car with Crimean, Moscow or seaside license plates in the Novosibirsk region does not say that the owner is from a foreign city.

      Nowadays, for example, a car with Crimean, Moscow or seaside license plates in the Novosibirsk region does not say that the owner is a nonresident
      as well as in St. Petersburg with Belarusian numbers)) You think - but no foreigner. Owner is a native Petersburg resident laughing
      Speaking of the fat ones. At one time I jumped aside (as a sailor) across the Asia-Pacific region. Mostly Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam. So I noticed this picture. Where there are fast food chains (in Japan, for example, KFC is almost on every corner), then in fact. The number of overweight citizens (especially children) is quite significant. I haven't seen much of this in South Korea. In China too. Their food traditions are stable there. In Vietnam (3 months of living in Saigon), to be honest, I have not seen a single overweight local. Only white foreigners. Not all of them, but a fair amount. And by the way, I have not seen a single fast food point either in Saigon or in Haiphong. Well, it was in 2003. Maybe we got there already now. Do not know.
      Further - I have been living in St. Petersburg for the seventh year (before that Nakhodka-Vladivostok). So here these "McDuck", "subway", "colonel" damn almost at every step. Especially in the center.
      wassat And the people all this hawala pancake as if not in themselves. Mothers of little children treat with hamburgers and even those idiotic cardboard crowns with inscriptions burgerKing get on and parade with a proud air fool I just want to go up to such a mom (dad) and knock on the head - "What are you doing with the children ??? !!!"

        I agree that there are few McDucks in South Korea, as well as in Shanghai and Guangzhou, there are mainly local chains with local food and for a European to eat there is a BIG PROBLEM - you just don't understand, what is it? Moreover, watching what the locals eat is absolutely not an option, I twice threw out food for 25 bucks due to the fact that it is different and does not correspond to our habits. In Vietnam (Da Nang) and in Tae (Phuket), there are practically no fat locals - but I think that because of poverty, they eat really little, because. in Tae the locals live next to you, you can see their families at dinner. Five people eat as much as a healthy hare with his wife.

          so they will be smaller in size a little laughing as for malnutrition, this is more likely to refer to North Korea. They do not starve, of course, but they do not overeat either. And they look accordingly. EUN does not count))

            I was in YK twice for three weeks and did not notice the malnourished there, I did not write about it. The food is not tasty - from our point of view, but people are fed up and drunk. I got to the festival of local vodka (moonshine), it was fun, but an appetizer .... when you drink nasty stuff from a ladle at 60 degrees and eat a very peppery cabbage or daikon, the feeling is indescribable. In the DPRK, in 1985 - in the army. we brought equipment there and fed us a "patriotic lunch" - there was rice in a cardboard box and the DPRK flag of boiled beets and carrots was neatly laid out. -))))))) on such a ration, you definitely will not break.

    With all due respect, those who have already traveled to Turkey, Thailand, Greece, etc., do not dream of enjoying their vacation in Anapa.
    1. Sea - in Turkey you can swim perfectly in June, July, August, September, October (1 half). In Tae - all year round (but there are nuances in the rainy season). In the Black Sea - this year, according to the reviews of employees of vacationers in Gelendzhik, Yalta, in early July from the cold in the water "twisted joints." Instead of a full 4.5 months, only 2,5 remain. Service - it's better not to talk about it at all. Prices - !!!!!!!!!! In Turkey, ordering one hotel through booking for the third year in a row, I received a 25% discount from the hotel !!!!, you are placed in the best room and to you in 2 weeks, the hotel manager comes in three times and inquires - Are you satisfied with everything? mister ..... I can already see how this is happening in Anapa. The most interesting thing is that people habitually go to the Crimea (pearl) and Sochi, pay more than for a vacation in better conditions than in Kemer or Belek. My right to choose the best vacation for my money. If for 30 years, we have not bothered to develop a competent recreation system, then our problems. The state does not want us to spend our earned money abroad, but it really does nothing to change the situation. As soon as Turkey was opened in July, more than 1 tourists from the Russian Federation rushed there. Anapa did not seduce anyone.

      you will not believe, but I want to drive to Anapa again.
      Although I am extremely spoiled as a resident of the EU and as a person who has visited half the world.
      And I would have gone there last or this year, but COVID made the cattle stay at home.
      Do you know why?
      "Longing for nostalgia" :)

      And yes, I agree with you.
      Turkey, or even more so Greece, to compare with Anapa - it doesn’t fit in my head at all.
      For the same loot, just a completely different service.
      And for the Sochi grandmothers, excuse me, it's better to fly to Tai for a month or rent a bungalow in Italy for a couple of weeks in Ostia, for example.
      Let them choke on their prices, honestly.
      I don't understand why I pay two or three times CHEAPER for beer in Switzerland or Austria or in the Tatras than in Krasnaya Polyana.
      What's better there?

        Comrade, you haven't been to your homeland for a long time ...
        Nostalgia is longing for the homeland or the past. In psychiatry, the form of a reactive state
        Longing for nostalgia is buttery oil.
        And for the rest - you need to go to Anapa only if you become too proud. And then they brought it here, you understand: bookings, stars at hotels, buffets ... they need lobsters and lobsters, but rapana with sand, but at the price of lobster ....... In our places they will quickly and clearly explain to you who are you in life. LET'S RIDE HERE. You know, we whitewashed the shed, renewed the toilet and hung the chain, but you still can't please them. And in three months we need to make money on these damned tourists for the whole year.

          1. Comrade - I visit my homeland every six months.
          2. "longing for nostalgia" was highlighted in quotes, especially for voices like you.
          3. No, Anapa is normal. It's just that I, personally, like my wife, sleep normally on a regular bed. And I eat what they give. But excuse me - eating in Turkey is cheaper and tastier.
          With all my love for the Motherland.

    I read the title “Russia at sea” (I don’t know the author yet), well, I think, an opus from you-know-someone about the curves of the stairs in Kerch, but what kind of service is “none” ... In general, a story familiar to the modern Russian Internet how the South Coast and the ChPK differ unfavorably from the Turkish "all-inclusive".
    And then, oops! The author writes how it turns out to be good to have a rest in Russia. Couple, I think not.
    Vyacheslav, I fully support your desire to popularize recreation on our Russian Black Sea coast. Moreover, there is something to popularize. We have clean beaches, good service, and good money. The biggest problem of Russian recreation today is the way back and forth. It is corny expensive. Over the past five years it has gotten better, but not globally, unfortunately. Turkish-Egyptian charters are still far away. If this problem is solved, then Turkey will have little chance.
    Af-ftar, write istcho!

    Overweight in the modern world is just a sign that a person cannot afford healthy natural food. This is perfectly illustrated by the example of Americans, who for the most part are essentially divided into two nations - those who can afford healthy food and those who eat food supplements from the supermarket. By the way, this fully applies to healthcare too. Health under capitalism is primarily a business. That is why they are optimizing the remnants of the Soviet health care system in every possible way, cutting down the conditionally free medicine. A couple of decades of such a policy and the level of a person's income can immediately be seen by their rickety appearance, a crooked spine and rotten teeth. And all because in childhood his parents did not have enough money for paid services, and universal pediatric medicine was successfully fucked
