# Chaszemli # chaszemlli2014 "Earth Hour" is an annual environmental action. Its essence is to turn off electricity for one hour and give the planet a rest.

Last week, the third issue of the Moskvich almanac was published. In fact, it’s the fourth, but the first issue was considered zero.

The journal is published by Ivan Bolshakov at his own expense, his friends who are involved in creating texts and photographs help him in this.
During the Olympics, Life around launched a special stream “Sochi with my own eyes”, where we collected instagram photos of participants and guests of the games.

On April 8, the exhibition "Mature Beauty" was opened on the second floor of Terminal E of Sheremetyevo Airport.

At our request, Igor sent us some photos, including those who did not reach the exhibition, and explained his vision of the style of elderly Russians.

According to the rules, a limited number of guests could get to the event, and the venue was kept secret until the last moment.

#Midsummernightsdream #msnd The main costume party of the summer, Midsummer Night's Dream, this time was not June mid-July, but June 21st. The venue again turned out to be the former Lermontov estate, Serednikovo near Moscow. As usual, the party was a big event for Instagram users - though, rain, traffic jam on the Leningradskoye Shosse and problems with the Internet on the estate's territory influenced the content of the pictures: most of them have a seat belt.
This weekend Halloween is celebrated in the clubs - part of the parties took place on October 31, several more are to be held today.
