Notes from the Road



For the first time since we began publishing this magazine over 20 years ago, the final content of a Russian Life issue was uploaded to our printer not from our Vermont “world headquarters,” but from the Russian heartland.

As I write this, we are deeply immersed in the research, travel, interviewing, photographing, writing and recording of our Children of 1917 project, where we are capturing the life stories and reminiscences (and advice) of Russians who were born in 1917, the year of Revolution (see PostScript, page 64). And, since travel for this project needed to happen in August, just as the issue you hold in your hands was to be wrapped up, final proofed, and sent to the printer, the finishing touches were made while our troika team (Mikhail Mordasov, Nadya Grebennikova and I) were on a 24-hour leg of the Trans-Siberian Railway, en route from Ufa to Novosibirsk.

How fitting.
