This was a very interesting conversation as I knew very little about this part of the world or the treasures that it holds. Dr. Wieda Focuses on the history, the culture, food and other aspects that leave one with a real appreciation for the area and things to see and do there.

I have participated in several of Dr. Nina Wieda’s presentations, and they have all been excellent. She is very knowledgeable about the subject matter, friendly and enthusiastic, and invests a lot of thought and planning in her presentations. She fully appreciates and actively responds to participants’ questions and ideas. This program about Siberia was a cut above, in part because of the exotic and isolated regions it covered. She included both extensive natural sites and communities, often ethnic minorities, and as always, included discussion and illustration of local people, their lives, foods, etc. Nina actually made me want to visit Siberia, maybe in my next life!
I've listened to lectures on Siberia before, but this one contained a lot of info that was new to me. It turns out not everything of interest is along the railway. A very stimulating and enjoyable lecture.
There is so much to learn this could be a a 4-5 talk course
