Central America: 10 Major Impressions

Русская версия We have just come back from six countries of Central America and want to share the main impressions from them. Undoubtedly, the countries are very different. Panama and Costa-Rica are quite rich, safe (this does not always apply to Panama) and expensive. El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras are much more frightening and you must be careful travelling there, but these countries are especially charming and not spoilt by tourists. Locals are very enthusiastic and friendly with those few travelers who come to these countries (extremely few tourists come to El Salvador and Honduras). Nicaragua is a golden mean: there is a lot to see there, yet, without tourist crowds. Just to compare: entrance fee to the territory of volcanoes Masaya in Nicaragua and Poas in Costa Rica are 3 and 15 dollars correspondingly. Meanwhile, both volcanoes provide excellent views.

Halloween in American Way: Our Memoirs and Ideas for Costumes

Русская версия Before Halloween, we decided to tell about one of our major impressions from being in the US. Many readers know that we did not only travel there, but also lived and studied for two semesters in Columbus, Ohio. Then, in 2013, Columbus was hosting one of the largest Halloween High Balls in the country. They closed the whole street so that it could be used by pedestrians only, and there were crowds of participants (about 25000).
