June 16th

I was pretty bad in lessons of history. But now I find that it is quite awesome to know some facts, events that was before. So when I am reading a book I like to search for author or book translator notes. When I was reading From Beyond by Arcady and Boris Strygatsky I found out that  Dushanbe - capital of Tajikistan since 1929 till 1961 was called Stalinabad. Dushanbe in Tajik language means - Monday.

In June 16th, 1963 Valentina Tereshkova was first female astronaut who wisited space. Now she is 76 and I was thinking, what she is doing today. Is she remembering or celebrating? As it is 50 years since I guess thet she is celebrating, as it was big event for humanity.

June 16.

Also found that since June 16, 2010 in Bhutan any kind of tobacco is prohibited.
