Hi Chris

Interesting article about Russia. I guess with Putin bristling for confrontation Russia may appear hostile to some. I travelled through Russia staying with families along the way some years ago. What lovely hospitable people. I even spent a couple of days sharing a train compartment with 3 Russian army officers, who plied me with vodka, dumplings and cards, on a journey from Moscow to Irkutsk.
They were so concerned about the Russian Mafia in Irkutsk and my safety that they offered me accommodation when we got there. I declined because I was travelling out to Lake Baikal to stay with a family.

I’ve included my website address which is not complete at present but I am writing a blog on my overland trip to Australia which included Russia so more will follow.

Love your site though.

Jonathan
