It’s really hard to describe all that thoughts, feelings and emotions which I experienced during 31 day of this grate expedition. I faced lots of thing for the first time in my life. Some of them shocked me, some touched me really deep. I suppose I have to say some words about how I found myself in this expedition before I start telling the story.
