We left Auckland on the evening of March 16, and on the morning in Tahiti it came again on March 16.

In this campaign, more than ever, we have felt how different the natural world is, and the way of life of a modern person on our planet.

Singapore is unique in that it is an ultra-modern, small state – a city where they try to use every square centimeter of land by 200 percent.

New Zealand is an island state located on a completely different two islands, one of them belongs to the Pacific tectonic plate, and the second is Australian.

And by nature they are completely different – one is mountainous, and the second is flat with hills, where volcanic activity is taking place.

French Polynesia is the pearl of the Pacific, not like not only some of the islands on our planet.

Our next stop was in the USA. We visited two national parks: Esemiti, and Sequoia.

We were struck by giant redwoods reaching a height of 150 meters, a diameter of 10 meters, and up to 2,000 years old.

Then we returned home to: Russia, Ukraine, USA, Kazakhstan.

We closed the ring, around our planet, felt that civilization is fading away closer to the 180 meridian.
