The Lure of Russia
20 Years of Travel & 20 Years of ChangeBook - 2010
Ford visited Russia 18 times in 20 years, leading groups of school students, then music and art groups. Ford provides the historical context to her travels, which provide snapshots of Russian life during pivotal times of momentous political and economic change. Gail's travellers also relive the lives of the Tsars through their palaces, hear the soaring basso-profundo voices of church choirs, are wooed with cakes and flowers by ardent young soldiers, and are booked into a hotel-brothel by officials in Samarkand.
