Sum of intensions ≠ Sum of actions. Own and Alien. Thoughtfulness and Volition are the Rules of Life.

Editor's note

Anti-epigraph «I could write something about an elephant but I would hardly write how to treat it. That is the way it is!» Haruki Murakami. Hear the Wind Sing. This issue is the opposite of what is written in the epigraph. There are many examples of how to treat «an elephant» that is earnestly and without being afraid to make simple, understandable and useful actions for those who are around you.

Strangers are God’s messengers
If one or another culture kept some fundamental values then penetration of alien cannot cause a destruction. On the contrary, "alien-love", feeling of alien makes it stronger, cultivates not only tolerance but also ability to take customary by other measures and it means dissidence. We are accustomed to take everything by our usual paces. May that is why sometimes innovational projects don't have an effect of renovation but repression of life.

Modern experience

Karelian Holidays: museum information network project
Nowadays museums are taking an active part in the development of regional tourism. It is not a fashion but a real possibility to affect the economic development of the territories. Even if these efforts do not seem to be very efficient and the Russian cultural tourism could hardly be compared, for instance, to cultural tourism in Italy, the importance of this obscure work on coordination of local efforts is hard to be questioned. We are now introducing a project on the development of the museum tourism system in Karelia funded by the TACIS program.

White petroglyph
It is well-known that in practice a festival form of cultural activity organization usually turns to very expensive shot of confetti, it is usually very beautiful, passive and of no sense. This text will surprise you with its simple idea of the festival, simplicity of activity organization and huge communicative potential. The festival “White Petroglyph” invented for a small town of Belomorsk, will certainly attract attention not only of tourists nut of many other people from other cities that are situated in the North of the planet

Parallel worlds

The Northern Nomads
The Nenets are people who occupy a big part of Russian North. They settle from the East to the West, from the lower of Yenisei river to Kola Peninsula and the borders with Scandinavian countries. The most part of this nation lives in tundra but there are a lot of the Nenets in forest-tundra and in the northern part of taiga. They live side by side with other northern nations: Hhanty, Dolgans and Yakuts. The word “man” in the Nenets language sounds like “nenets” so the name of the nation comes from it. We present here two stories at once: in a story of Lyudmila Tashkevich, a teacher from Yamal Peninsule who is a grandmother of our editor Lyudmila Tashkevich and a photo story of Alexander Kuznetsov, a photographer from Krasnoyarsk. A photo story was made during the expedition “To meet Nansen” on Yenisei (look at the story in “60 parallel”, No1, 2004) and it tells about Nenets and Kets from Yenisei. Along with them we present the photos from the archives of Yamal regional museum of local lore.
