Il Grande Est
Che diavolo hanno in comune Nahodka e Svetlogorsk, Ladoga e Mehri, Pietroburgo e Makhachkala, Grozny e Istanbul, Mosca e Aleppo?
GreatEastVibes è un blog di viaggio su due mondi apparentemente incompatibili: l’ex spazio sovietico e il Medio Oriente o la grande Umma – fino al selvaggio Est. Saltellando dall’uno all’altro, nella speranza di non lasciar nulla indietro.
