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.

Arthur was recommended to me by a friend who used his services before, but my actual experience with him surpassed my friend's recommendations and exceeded my expectations. Arthur posses the following attributes: Always on time, safe driver, knows Moscow's roads very well, very knowledgeable tour guide be it in a museum or outside at any of the numerous tourist attractions. Combine this with his excellent English, and his pleasant personality, and you get all the ingredients required for a perfect vacation in Moscow.

The city is magnificent, and with Arthur's help, you get to see it from many angles, both during the day and at his famous night tours which should not be missed.

He is also a professional quality amateur photographer and will provide you with a dossier of artful picture taken during the trip. Nothing but Kudos and Echolades
