Tours to Russia

The following is a paid review:

New Year's celebration is coming and I was asked to offer you a great way to spend it in Russia. I talk about Baltic travel company's (located in UK) tours to Russia. So what do they have.

First of all it's guiding tours to Moscow, St. Petersburg and some other famous places. For example, choosing "Experience Russia Tour" you'll have one day to see the town where I live, Velikiy Novgorod. Program includes visiting the Kremlin and St. Sophia Cathedral, Yaroslavl Court, open-air museum Vitoslavlitsy and Cathedral of St. George. Tour's prices start at £1000 pp.

Another interesting tour is "Trans-Siberian Express". For 14 days you'll pass all Russia from West to East. You'll see Russian nature, Russian vilages, and still unexplored Eastern part of Russia.

Moscow and St. Petersburg city breaks leave you more freedom for planning your holidays. It would be mainly interesting for experienced travellers or travellers with unusual interests. Anyway, walking without guide, you can better feel the mood of the place, act like native people, make friends, and do things you can't do with a guide =). Russians are friendly to tourists, so you can be free to walk wherever you want . City breaks are much cheaper than guided tours. Prices start at £500 pp.

P.S. Happy New 2009 year =)!

The following is a paid review:

I would agree to sit in prison if there were a computer and the Internet (and that me fed and started up in a toilet). The Internet, if you yet have not understood, is more terrible than the Siberian ulcer, the bird's flu and AIDS. In the future, people will migrate to the Internet but not in cosmos. I don’t know how it will be; I hope somebody will think it out for me...

And where those times when I stood in a queue at cinema on "The Matrix"!

More ingeniously then the Internet to think up nothing. Judge: on the Internet you can get virtual sex with whom has got, to copy messages from one window to another, to fall in love, exchange gossips and to have 100 friends, and certainly to earn a PayPal.

For example, free-lance work is very interesting thing. Is like you are cool designer from Kolyma, but you have free-lance work in one famous design company in Moscow or Paris. And also you receive for the design so much, how many in Kolyma nobody and never would pay to you.

Or another variant - you whimper in the blog, that you can’t find work and as a result the employer himself find you.

There is the system ReviewMe. The system is engaged in reviews. Any company, may be Audi, decided to arrange PR-action on the Internet and has addressed for service to ReviewMe. And ReviewMe ask bloggers for some payment write about Audi in their blog. Now it is popular to be a blogger and get a blog. It is considered, that it is very favorable to advertise the company in blogs.

P.S. There is same system in Russia.

James Bond girls

In certain quarters of Manhattan these days, it's not unusual to encounter characters that seem to have come right out of a James Bond film: beautiful young Russian girls with revealing outfits and hidden agendas. They're the latest status accessory in New York's power game, the mistresses of the Masters of the Universe. The fact that they're dangerous -- wild, unpredictable, on the lookout for a bigger and better deal -- only seems to increase their appeal. So certain women on the East Side are not seeing their husbands as much as they used to. "How old is your Russian?" one just-abandoned uptown wife asked another not long ago.

Russia, Racism and Pushkin

The greatest gift Hannibal gave to Russia was a great grand son named Alexander Pushkin. And the greatest gift that Pushkin gave to white Russian was literature written in Russian. Without Pushkin the black poet of Russia there would have never had been some of the most famous poets of Russian history. The white racists need to remember — that the next time they see a book written in Russian. They should say to themselves we own this to a black man named Alexander Pushkin. Then realize that when they attack a black person in a hate crime they are attacking part of Puskin’s African genetics.
