Seasons Greetings from Russia

Seasons Greetings from Russia

Hanukkah is now well under way, and Christmas is only one week away... Winter holidays are coming and many people in a lot of countries have already started to shop for Christmas gifts and to think about how they can greet the New Year of 2008.

I think that celebrations of Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year can unite all people in World, from different countries - all of us want to be with our friends, families, relatives. We want happiness and peace. We want stability now and in future. We wish our relatives strong health and pray to God for them.We are happytowatch how our lovely kids growandprepare them for agreat future! Do you agree with me? If yes, lets drinkto that duringour celebrations of Hanukkah, Christmas andthe New 2008 Year!!!

This newsis with my personal greetingsfor the current and upcomingwinter holidays, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year of 2008, I would like to dedicate to all my former clients and friends who I met for whole my life. Now I am worried again, as last year, that I will not have a time to send personal seasons greetings to all my friends in many countries, but I hope that they can read my wishes:

- Happy Hanukkah!
- Merry Christmas!
- Happy New 2008 Year!
- Strong Health and Happiness to you and your family!
- Spend a great time during your Winter Vacation!

With this news I would like to post for you a picture which I think will fit 100% to upcoming celebrations of Christmas and New Year. I took this picture on the famous pedestrian street of Moscow, Old Arbat, walking up and down the street with my clients Millie Ball and Keith Marshall on October 28th 2007 and when I got this picture, I immediately decided that I have to post it with the current news.

On the picture you can see a Russian vendor who is dressed in traditional, old Russian costume and who has pretty long Russian beard - very typical for past times. The name of this vendor is Vladimir Vladimirovich (is it sounds familiar? Yes! - the same name has our popular president of Russia, Putin! and, by the way, this vendor is proud of it!), and he sells souvenirs here from 1991. If you will have a chance to be on Old Arbat street, you can find his small booth on the right side at the beginning of the street, if you walk from the Moscow Kremlin. He is very friendly, likes to talk about his daughters (one is ballerina, another - manager in big trade tea company). If you will buy some souvenirs in his booth he will be pleased to let you to take pictures with him. Don't miss him when you will be on Old Arbat street, real fun!!!

With BEST Regards,

Hiro and I recently spent three days in Moscow to attend the 2006 Cup of Russia at which a friend of ours participated. From the moment we contacted Arthur via this website, he was completely professional. Our flights arrived and left during the middle of the night, but it was no problem to Arthur to collect us and bring us where we needed to go. He even helped us check-in at our hotel and when we left he brought us right to our check-in counter. Unfortunately, we didn't have very much time for sightseeing, but we had come all the way to Moscow, so we wanted to see a bit of the city. Arthur put together a short tour to take us around to some of the major sights (Church of Christ Our Saviour, Kremlin, Red Square, GUM, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, etc.). Being a photographer, he also knew the best vantage points to get some nice pictures. He was so knowledgable about Moscow and it was great to hear his commentary about the city. He also helped us very much in shopping for souvenirs and recommending reasonable places to eat. All in all, Arthur made our stay in Moscow so enjoyable and memorable and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who visits Moscow.
