“ In a shower of the nature silence, and the sky at night it that there is a wish to look at it, without ceasing, all night long: stars bright on a dense black background, and the moon - as the silver sun - objects become illusive and in scattered this world cast mysterious shadows “ - approximately such words one my friend describes life in the village.
I, in turn, do not love either the dacha, or the village, or notorious silence. However, all - it is necessary to happen periodically there. It is seldom possible to remain sitting within six hundred parts, and, whatever one may do, and pulls in the wood.
Perfectly, of course, if you long time go to the same wood on the footpaths experienced by you, but often, gathering mushrooms - berries, it is possible to come into such solitude … that meetings with a wolf or a bear not to avoid.

It is necessary to be attentive, to look under legs and not to catch for what got, to stir a grass and leaves a stick, the snake will disappear, in time having felt your approach.
If all of you met a snake on the way, stop, do not get closer to her and, the main thing, be not afraid. The snake will never attack the first, but any careless movement for her - the menacing sign. If the snake feels threat, write was gone, the snake will let out the poison instantly.

Then it is necessary to process a wound iodine, alcohol, brilliant green and if is not present - to put the kneaded plantain leaves and to tie up a wound that dirt did not get to it. The victim has to be in rest and, it is desirable, in a cool. It is possible to give it waters, but not alcohol.
The sting of venomous snakes causes severe and long pain and hypostasis, bruises on places of a sting. Victims complain of waist pains, the complicated breath and heartbeat. In hard cases - violation of consciousness, vomiting, decline of warm and respiratory activity. Poison can quickly spread to a considerable surface of a body, at the same time falling of arterial pressure, excitement, spasms, dot hemorrhages is observed. Many of these symptoms can just appear for fear therefore do not panic, and see a doctor.
