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.

PS: Congratulations to all my former clients and friends from USA with Independence Day!!!

With BEST Regards from Moscow,

Our brief two days in Moscow could not have been better thanks to you, Arthur. Our family of 4, including a 17 yr old boy and 13 yr old girl had a complete blast - from incredible WW 2 sites, memorials, amazing trips to Red Square and the Kremlin... we had no idea Moscow had so much to offer (we liked it far more than St. Pete -which we enjoyed too), I could not agree more w/all the comments below re: being on time, informed, and fun to be with - I would add that the ability to accommodate the needs of a crazy family like ours, your flexibility and willingness to "do what it takes" makes you a very special guide indeed... we felt like good friends after one evening together! I absolutely recommend your services to anyone interested in really experiencing Moscow!
