We are opening a new section in which we will share the most interesting finds from social networks in recent times. Our editors find dozens of interesting, unusual and important texts, but not from each they can make a separate material. Therefore, every two weeks (and maybe more often) we will publish the most relevant posts from travelers, ethnographers, photographers, influenza, journalists and workers of the tourism industry. This is something that does not get into the media, but what exactly will be interesting and useful to learn.
Last year, a terrible news spread around the facebook: a Russian journalist Anna Karabash was raped by a staff member of the five-star Six Senses Zil Pasyon hotel in the Seychelles. At the same time, the hotel tries to hush things up and covers the rapist in every possible way. This is terrible, unacceptable and should be punished.
“I slept in the villa. It was night, half past night. The cleaner came and I do not know how, for I slept and raped me. I never saw this person before. He was with a knife and promised to kill. I screamed. I broke free. I was scratching. He was stronger. The alarm button was not there. He did not give me a call. It was senseless to yell, the villas are far enough from each other, and no one apparently did not hear anything, “Anna said in Facebook. Worst of all, the hotel not only did not help Anna in this terrible situation, but, on the contrary, accused her of lying. So, the police arrived at the hotel only eight hours after the incident, and the co-owner of the hotel Laura Valabji began a conversation with Anna with the words “Did you get pleasure last night? “(” Did you enjoy last night? “). Later it turned out that the hotel is trying to hide this story with all its might and even hinders the progress of the investigation.
When we read Anna’s post, we were deeply shocked by this story. The main task of any hotelier is not only clean and soft beds, but, of course, the safety of guests. And if there was an incident, then the hotel should take full responsibility for it. Anna is an incredibly strong and brave woman who has not stopped this story and is now fighting to ensure that the guilty have been punished. Now she has to pay not only the work of expensive international lawyers, but also to fly to the courts and proceedings in the Seychelles. In this difficult matter you can help Anna – all the details and details are in her post. Here you can read a great interview with Anna.
Anton is a famous Russian photographer and winner of international photography competitions. He not only visited the most remote corners of our country, but also constantly conducts photo tours in wild and beautiful places. That’s why Anton notices the dynamics of changes in these or other locations: sometimes this is good news, and sometimes, as in the case of Baikal, very bad. Annually Anton organizes winter photo tours around Lake Baikal, and, according to him, this year the state of Lake Baikal has greatly worsened: “Most grottoes are disfigured. Most of the available places are “signed”. Yellow snow, yellow icicles. Toilets in caves, dumps on ice. “
We believe that it is extremely important to talk about the state of Russia’s natural sites. And we hope that someday the situation will change, and people (primarily locals and workers of the tourism industry) will begin to take a more responsible approach to the world around them.
A glance from the mouth of the icy dragon. And if you leave the lyrics, then on the Baikal the situation is complicated. With each year, more and more tourists. I do not understand how you can shit such beauty. In the literal sense, shit! &# 128552; Most grottoes are disfigured. Most available places "signed". Yellow snow, yellow icicles. Toilets in caves, garbage on ice. &# 128702; Some especially clever pour hot tea on the ice. As a result, there are ugly brown spots similar themselves know what. And to top it off, you need to break the icicles. It’s just so much fun. And for the FIG, that those who after you will come, no longer see this beauty. Only hemp hacked hang. Anger is not enough! Why does not beauty treat people? A rhetorical question. It’s sad. It was boiling !!! &# 128548; Find an unkempt grotto is now over task! This grotto in the photo is secret in a secret place. I decided not to upload the detailed route on the site any more and not give locations. Because as soon as you fill the place, everything! There’s already a crowd. Once upon a time, about 3 years ago the Usuras were a backwoods and we were very rare photographers who stayed there for several days with an overnight stay, despite the lack of amenities. &# 128704; Now the crowds have reached the Uzur, to the grottoes of the chic … and that’s it. Kapets to the grottoes. &# 128542; That’s why you need to travel with an experienced photoguide, who all came and knows secret places. &# 128170; Just to come to Khuzhir of course you can. But what will you see there? (For the sake of this, so many here flew and went? So again I say, carefully choose with whom to go .On Baikal, you can very differently visit and see very different there. #agarkov_mountains
