Swans in Aktau May 26, 2012
Aktau is situated on the Caspian Sea, Mangyshlak Peninsula with very limited fresh water supplies. I never thought before that swans can live in salt water. Now I know that they can and they live.

There is a spot on the City Embankment, where you can see a lot of birds - seagulls, pigeons, swans and even flamingos (if you are lucky). These swans are already a symbol of Aktau, and their arrival is traditionally marks the New Year. Almost all celebrations in this city are connected with this place on the Embankment when people come here to feed these birds.

And the Caspian Sea itself is beautiful, by the way!
