"Kolkhuri" is an unusual method of swimming that once interested a citizen of Sevastopol, Oleg Sofyanik. Now he swims with his hands and legs tied with elastic bandage. Those who invented such "kolkhuri" are
sure that a man practising it becomes hardy, brave and is not afraid of death. Oleg decided to swim 400 meters (1312 ft) in the "kolkhuri" style. He had been training for three weeks to do it.
A bench is like a model of the world. Everything goes around a bench. Couples who can't find another place for passion, hoboes who use a bench as home, a table, a toilet and a bed, students who always break benches or prepare for exams sitting on them, old people who live their last
days on a bench... Eugene Kotenko chose one ordinary bench and was describing its life for four years. It had been gray but then was painted blue, trash bins appeared and disappeared and more new people kept coming to spend some part of their life on the bench.
