- We here at least to 30 numbers remain, - the saleswoman of corn at the corner of Apraksin - Garden Elena Vikina smiles.
the Autumn price for an ear is lowered almost on third. But buyers all the same do not hurry to sale. That is strange, in dank weather the corn with a heat about a heat should disperse better, than in heat.

And as has become cold – that only in a hall, already to get warm, – the barman of restaurant on 2 - oh Krasnoarmejsky makes a helpless gesture. – But in a following season, a summer terrace all the same we are not going to refuse. People should have a choice.
