Obama & Medvedev Nesting Dolls

Obama & Medvedev Nesting Dolls

Obama will visit Moscow on July 6-8 to meet with President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin. So now if you walk through the Red Square and Kremlin areas or any tourist attractions or crafts markets Vernisazh in Izmailovo you can see the ubiquitous nesting doll with Obama on them and also the American flag! These nesting dolls called Matreshka are one of the national souvenirs of Russia and are hand made from wood and hand painted (cheap ones have photo copies on it).

PS: This picture was taken in an open area market near a stand with many Matreskas dolls, so because of sunlight it was quite hard to avoid a glare over heads of the presidents caused by reflection from laquered surfaces of nestling dolls.

With BEST Regards from Moscow,

WE ONLY GAVE ARTHUR TWO AND A HALF DAYS TO SHOW US ALL OF MOSCOW AND HE CAME THROUGH. WE SAW ALL OF THE IMPORTANT CHURCHES AND MONUMENTS INCLUDING THE RED SQUARE AND MR. LENIN HIMSELF. A HIGHLIGHT BESIDES THE NORMAL WAS OUR VISIT TO THE "MUSEUM OF THE GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR". HE WAS ALWAYS ON TIME AND VERY COURTEOUS TO US. WE THANK HIM FOR INTRODUCING US TO MOSCOW.
