    Ooh! Karachay-Cherkessia! I worked there for 3 years on the Chapaly mountain. As we said: "Chapaly, Chapaly, blue gave. We have seen such beauty for x .." laughing In general, the most gorgeous places! If there was a free day off, they went to the mountains. Climbed there! Now only the photographs remind.
