    Pereyaslavl' (one Of The Oldest Russian Towns)

    Russians applyed gunpowder for canons since 1382 year to defend Moscow from Mongols. I believe it wasn't earlier. They usually used boiled grease which poured out on the enemy's heads. BTW, the applying of canons was one of the reasons why Mongols couldn't defeat Moscow.

    Church (museum of history now)

    All sights in Pereyaslavle have not so good condition. I was wondered about using bad paint for restoration some buildings there. Nevertheless, this church looks so.

    Contact Lenses Or Operation?

    Oh, my operation was good and I haven't problems with my eyes now (I wear glasses sometimes but it's not so need for me now). thanks! Yes, I know Richard Fazzini, I already read his lectures about Luxor and about history of Egypt. I found he's one of the best egyptologist in the world now. I often use his thought about history of Egypt. They are always very competent and understandble.
