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,

Arthur could not have given us a better tour and look at Moscow! He is a personal and caring guide. We saw the beautiful sights of the city. Arthur took the mystery out of the handsome churches, the Red Square, Lenin's tomb; everything you would want to know about Moscow. He took photos of my husband and me in all the picturesque locations, and he
really has a gift with a camera.
Please consider a tour with Arthur if you are planning a trip to Russia.
p.s. he really know his history!
