Carpe Diem Haiku *Chita*

City Chita (Чита) is situated in the Eastern Siberia, right where the river Chita meets the river Inogoda. There are only two cities in the world where on the same hill at the same time are three temples of three different religions: Judaism, Islam and Christianity, and Chita is one of them. In the ancient part of the city on the top of the hill (the old prison use to be there, too) there is a synagogue, a mosque and an orthodox church. This is why Chita is called also “the second Jerusalem”.
