Experiencing the culture of Central Asia

The Chinese culture remained a dream of their influence; on one nomadism was to occur in the steppes of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, not in Siberia. Ancient Sumerian cultural state, Babylonia, already 3,000 years BC it was conquered by the Semitic nomads; then winners and losers are gradually mixed up and subsequently acted on the stage of history under the name of Babylonians. Other Semites firmly to the nomadic pastoral way of life, which is so poetically depicted in the ancient biblical stories. Even grander was the first appearance on the historical stage of the Aryan nomads.

Many are turning to professional matchmakers who, when advertising their services, saying the following: “Love is blind. When a man and a woman love each other, they see their elected representatives only positive qualities and fails to notice shortcomings. Therefore, if you are looking for your spouse, guided only by feelings, you’ll easily be wrong…”

In Korean society, there is one immutable requirement: forbidden to marry the groom and the bride with identical Ponomarev (belonging to the same genus).
