Aliye Parusa and Passport

people past and present attended the opening of a fascinating photo exhibition by Svetlana Privalova at the Aliye Parusa yacht club on the Moscow River on September 10. Passport’s recent advertising manager Ramkumar was one of the five expats who were the subjects of Ms Privalova’s pictures. The highly professional organizer of the event was Anna Kulyagina, who was Passport’s acting editor in 2008. Given the yacht club location, it was appropriate that John Bonar, Passport’s sometime editor was there too, doing his famous Long John Silver impression. We were treated to a beautiful sunset over the river, which was nice as Aliye Parusa really means Red Sails. While admiring the view from the terrace, I spotted George Voloshin and asked him what he was doing now that he was no longer managing director of Passport. He leaned over to me and said, “If I told you that, I’d have to kill you afterwards.”
