growing number of tourists including quite a few Ameri cans are visiting Russia these days When I was there earlier this year a representative of In tourist Russias official travel agency estimated that the 1956 total had been 125000 visitors from other countries and he ex pected an even larger number this year In the light of my own experi ence behind the Iron Curtain you may wonder what my counsel would be to Americans toying with the idea of visiting Russia It would be this If your aim is to inform your self on how the other half lives I strongly recommend that you proceed with your travel plans If however your goal is a period of pleasant restfulness I advise you to strike Russia from your list My own testimony with respect to my time in Russia must sound a bit inconsistent I

enough for public meetings An ancient grand paino went almost un noticed in one corner of the living room Plumbing is ancient and noisy but that same thing can be said of the plumbing in every other hotel I patronized except the IstanbulHilton in Turkey If Youre Hungry Enough The food is palatable espe cially if youre hungry And I was that most of the time After one trial run with native dishes such as borsch I found myself scan ning the menus for something familiar to me like beefsteak smothered in onions Natives take their drinking water out of faucets but I couldnt bring my self to do so
