To do a transatlantic cruise now everyone can. But much more fun to do it with the witty guide, who is called the first truly American writer. In 1867 mark TWAIN went with "elected" by the society on the steamship "Quaker city" to the Old world. The company was captivated by the grandeur: it lasted for months, "pilgrims" visited Paris and Genoa, traveled from Sicily to Sebastopol, climbed to the top of Vesuvius and stopped in the Crimea, where they were warmly received by Alexander II. Welcome address by His Imperial Majesty, composed by TWAIN, even preserved in the Russian archive. Brilliant style, extreme concentration of humor and satire, a bit naive and slightly arrogant look of the typical American, discover Europe, this is the recipe for success of famous traveloh. The first book TWAIN that made him famous, like any modern traveller, identified in the detailed descriptions of familiar places, which a century later has not changed.
