How many "known unknown"01/31/2014 Nataliya
Greetings to all participants in the project!
Let's talk not about a particular, and about the elusive knowledge about them? Reading any book or just a note in the newspaper, a person often meets in tex description of a particular place (topos) and just on the machine sees it. Yes, many times we find Patriarch's Ponds, or Calvary, the Admiralty Needle or any town on the banks of the Volga, but we take them for granted and just "pass by." Only a few readers will find it in the book or make an inquiry online. We "construct described place" themselves in my head and so surprised when they find not similar to our understanding ... How often do you interested in history familiar in name only and general views will place your best to comprehend the unknown side?Machine translationI like this Liked by 5 Comments: 2

The house number 6 on the embankment from 1835 to 1918 housed the Imperial College, and his students wear uniforms of green and yellow colors. This coloring is very reminiscent of the small bird feathers siskins. In addition, students wear distinctive hats reindeer-fawn. And hence their nickname "finch-fawn" and that they were formed on the lines:Machine translationI like this Liked by 4 Comments: 0
