Editor's Letter

Welcome to PASSPORTs one-year anniversary issue. We think its been a great first year and we hope you do too.

Since our inaugural issue came out last November, weve interviewed oligarch Roman Abramovich, profiled five Olympic athletes and published major features on the renaissance of Moscows contemporary art scene, how to deal with culture shock and the renaissance of Russian film. In our travel section, weve taken you to Armenia, Finland, the Golden Ring, Kyrgyzstan and beyond. In Practical Moscow, weve taught you how to buy carpets and fur coats, and given you the inside scoop on where to go for a new Russian visa. Over the course of the year weve expanded the number of pages and increased the print run as well.

While weve achieved a lot in our inaugural year, we know we can make the magazine even better even more entertaining and thought-provoking and useful for you and your family. Well be conducting surveys and focus groups over the next two months that will help us determine our future direction. And well be on the lookout for fresh new ideas.

If you have thoughts about the magazine things you like or things you dont, a topic you would like us to write about, ideas on how we can improve design or who we should put on the cover please send us an e-mail. We love to hear your ideas.

Stephen Dewar, who edits PASSPORTs books section, is planning a special end-of-year tribute to the best books of 2004. If you are dying to let your fellow PASSPORT readers know about that superb novel or biography you just read this year whether its Russia-related or not send the title, authors name and an eloquent sentence or two commending it as first-rate reading to Stephen will hand-pick the wittiest responses and well publish them in the upcoming December/January issue.

We hope you enjoy the magazine. Have a great month!

J. Quinn Martin
