A Note to Readers

This blog is about by my travels in the Russian Far East.  It has two sections that are 20 years apart.

In 1992 and 1993,  I lived in Khabarovsk while writing a weekly column for the Anchorage Daily News.  My column, “A Winter in Russia,” never existed on the Internet until now. I have kept my original drafts and will be publishing those drafts here, along with photographs I took at the time. I recently digitalized the photos, which were taken with color slide film. Many of the slides were damaged by mold, and I’m in the process of restoring them and uploading the restored images on this blog.

In 2012, I returned to the same region with my wife, Svetlana, and our daughter, Ihila, to visit Svetlana’s sisters and to show Ihila the remote village where I met her mother. Ihila and I kept a blog about our journey. You can read that about our travels below.  If  you drop to the bottom of the blog, you can start at the beginning.  Tom Bell, Dec. 26, 2014.
