My name is Nicholas Zvegintzov, and I’m retired. I once was an expert in software maintenance.
I’ve traveled to many strange places, but where I live is strange too – on a hill above the Staten Island Ferry Terminal with a view of the towers of New York City.
I’ve stayed with many wonderful people, and wonderful people have stayed with me. I hope you will too.
In my experience the Guest is tired, hungry, and cold, and needs to be treated for those conditions, besides being offered clean linen, a subway map, and a guide to the light switches. (Oh yes, and a shower, laundry, and internet. And a drink.)
Stay over – see New York from far and near – and I’ll try to do the same for you.
(And I highly recommend ‘Siberian BAM Guide - rail, rivers, and road / Includes North-East Russia’s Siberian BAM Railway, Lena River & Kolyma Highway’, 2nd edition, by Athol Yates and Nicholas Zvegintzov, Trailblazer Publications, UK, 2001. Or look at pictures at SiberiaBAMLena.)
Happy traveling and safe arrivals!
