If you happen to be in Tibet for the first time, you won’t probably manage to escape so-called mountain disease. Any pills and natural adaptogens (weather it’s ginger, garlic, bat wings and toad livers) won’t surpass the chief doctor called time. Your mortal body itself must adapt to high altitude. During the first 7-10 days you’ll have to live with terrible headache 24 hours a day trying to appease it with various vitamins. Sometimes it’ll seem that you’re like in jelly. Your mood will change at the speed of sound varying from pig squeals of delight caused by nonsense to old man’s grumbling and a desire to tell each and all to go to hell. But then it all will be OVER and you’ll feel the pure pleasure of being in such a marvelous place.

Auckland War Memorial Museum – quite an intersting place, it’s not the Hermitage or the National Museum of Egypt, but it also has something to show and to tell. However, this time we are not going to discuss wars. On the first floor of the museum there is an exposition of the ancient everyday life of close islanders (nearly all islands from New Zealand to the equator). Their statuettes, sculptures, masks are all interesting. Maori (famous aboriginals) decorated doors of their houses with such masks, deterrent and creepy, that had to scare evil spirits or enemies away.
