Dinner in the saloon “Last chance” – the flavor of the North American heartland, in an old cowboy style.

Kyrgyz environmentalists are sounding the alarm: the plastic in the coastal zone feed zone destroys the local fauna. And the situation is worst in the so-called wild beaches. However the garbage around the lake – this is just the tip of the iceberg.
