In the village there is a stony road, on the right side of which overhangs rock,and on the left below, the stream roars. The road goes uphill all the time, travelers pass kilometer after kilometer, but to their great surprise, they do not feel any fatigue, or the passage of time – these categories in the mountains they fade into the background, the fantastic mountain beauty distracts the traveler from them, he simply does not notice them. Therefore, travelers look with surprise at the houses that appeared around the bend, but just were at a distance of 5 kilometers – you think that the distance in the mountains is measured differently than on the plain, that here it looks like shagreen skin. It is not surprising that Goryanin will never say that the distance to the village is 5 kilometers, he will just say a few kilometers.
