Mar' Tirreno -finally together

This year I was very fortunate to visit 3 seas.

I has to go home, I was in Russia and Ukraina, with my nephew and my mother.

Because we was very busy all days, and the poor boy has to stay alone in the house, my task was to go with him swimming in the evening. Sure, if it was not for this, I would never move one step, but now I'm happy to say: this year I could swimm in 3 seas!

Azov sea is not so blu as on the photo. The colour of the sea is green-braun. It is fast not salted cold and quiet. It's not deep too. You can go kilometers in some places to reach where you can swimm.

Black sea was really black the first week. Here we coud visit ше only in the evening too, but it was a splendid experience. In Sochi you can find beaches full of people in every hour. The water is more salted as in Azov, not so cold (ahhh, great!) and often with waves. It was very interesting to see lokal boys playing with the waves.

And finally Italy. Here there is a national feast, Ferragosto, the middle of august. Nobody works on this day. All population is laying on the beach. My husband has no vacation this year, so we were happy to have the possibility for swimming. Maybe it was last time for me this year...

Sochi today

I was very pleased to pass 2 weeks in Sochi this year. This city had always something special, but now is realy beautyful.

People g0 to Sochi for beaches and sea first of all
This is central beach "Majak" where you can never find place to put your foot

You can walk comfortably to your preferite place now, there are real streets to reach the sea. But not only. "Majak" is a real commercial center with all sorts of shops.

This is an other beach, under the park "Riviera"

You can find people near the sea at any time, in the night too...

Park "Riviera" is full of attractions and interesting plants. Thousands of persons in the center and quiet nice places in the side paths.

Central streets are repaired, with a sea of flowers and trees

and......... yes, here too. My nephew says it's more expensive then in Moscow...

This (blue) is one of the restaurants. Sochi has not nighttime. You come there not to sleep but to enjoy life. And to spend money...

English punctuation

I thought (and read in different books for english-language students) the rule for punctuation in english is:
it's always better to leave your sentence without commas- less you have them, more understandable is your thought.

Look this one:
"A woman without her man is nothing"

Now read these
"A woman, without her man, is nothing."

And what do you think about this:
"A woman: without her, man is nothing."
