Strangely enough, but "circumnavigations" have rules which need to be observed: the first and the main from them - the expedition has to pass through two antipodes, that is through two points located precisely on the opposite sides of Earth. The trip on June 7 from the Moscow region center Jaguar Land Rover Experience, here on August 15 started and finished.
