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.

I needed to send my wife and daughter to Moscow. Neither of them had ever been there and we all three were worried. After speaking with Arthur a few times I felt he could be trusted and even felt somewhat comfortable paying him in advance and using his services. When they arrived he met them at the airport. He drove them to their hotel and even showed them the area around the hotel. He himself contacted me to let me know they had arrived safely. I was glad I had trusted him with my two most valuable treasures
and would recommend anyone could do the same.
Months after that, my wife, daughter and I met in Moscow. Naturally and without any hesitation I called on his services again. Since we were arriving at different airports and at different times I was concerned, but he as before eased my mind by taking care of all the arrangements in Moscow for us. He picked the up at their airport, brought them to mine and patiently waited with them. During my visit to Moscow I had hired him numerous times and I was overwhelmed by his courtesy, his knowledge of the city and its vast history, and his willingness to help in any way he could. This was the best sightseeing excursion I had ever been on and the fact that his English was impeccable, and this made it that much better. I will use his services any and every time I am in Moscow. I would highly recommend to anyone going to Moscow, even if you have been there before he can make your stay the most pleasant. Believe me please, he is one man you must know in Moscow.
Truly sincere
