Russian Travel Made Easier: Advice for Friends
Russian Travel Made Easier: Advice for Friends is a travel guide and a reference book written by two Russians who have lived in America for the past decade. It is based on the authors personal travel experiences. During their frequent visits home, many of their American friends came along and helped them to discover Russia as the visitors see it. The authors realized that what comes naturally to a native Russian could be a hindrance for tourists. These personal accounts also opened their eyes to the kind of advice that would be the most valuable.
