Thank you for your blog and info! I was wondering if you could let me know about Kostya - did that base fee include transportation and hotels, or was that just for his services? Was he with you the entire time or did he send someone else to be with you? I've read many good things about him and of course one or two not so good ones. We hope to travel in the fall of 2009.
