You can save a lot of money by booking a villa or apartment rather than booking with a travel agent but I would advise on following these simple guidelines to make sure you haverepparttar 140203 guarentees you are looking for. Firstly always speak torepparttar 140204 villa owner by telephone,it is better than just talking by email, Before you phone make sure you have a list of questions written down that you want answered. If you do not feel comfortable withrepparttar 140205 answers then you do not bookrepparttar 140206 villa or apartment. Always make sure you get emailed confirmation ofrepparttar 140207 reservation ofrepparttar 140208 villa or apartment before you send a deposit orrepparttar 140209 full payment.

Siberia, Russia Part 3 – Communist Planes and Defining “Fluent”

Written by Rick Chapo

Continued from page 1

Our flight consisted of about 100 people. Of these, 90 percent were Russians. Grae and I counted as two andrepparttar remaining five or so people were religious volunteers going to convertrepparttar 140110 godless masses. They appeared to be having no luck onrepparttar 140111 plane, but Grae and I were able to strike up a few conversations.

I must say thatrepparttar 140112 Russians onrepparttar 140113 plane were extremely nice and very honest. While honesty is generally a good thing, their frankness made me a bit uncomfortable. First, there was a clear consensus that we were out of our mind for agreeing to go to Chita. “You are going WHERE?!” was followed by a lot of whispering between Russians and bulging eyes. Since I doubtedrepparttar 140114 pilot would be willing to turnrepparttar 140115 plane around, this wasn’t particularly comforting.

Our conversations raised an additional problem regardingrepparttar 140116 definition of “fluent”. In my mind, being fluent in a language meant that one could get directions, tell boring stories, etc., inrepparttar 140117 language in question. It quickly became clear that Grae’s definition of “fluent” was something less. This was verified when he turned to me and said, “Man, I’ve forgotten a lot.”

Great. Khabarovsk was only a few hours a way. But that’s a story to be told in Part 4 of this series…
