St Petersburg

Written on: Sunday October 21st, 2007

Another great place. I expected a load of Police checking papers and miserable people for some reason, but instead we have yet again met some great people and have found ourselves and a wonderful city. I had a tour of St Petersburg from a Russian girl called Jenya who I met when we were out a couple of nights ago, and today we went to the Winter Palace for a look around at all the art etc. At the beginning of the week I thought time would go slowly in Petersburg, but it has raced by. At first it is intimidating stepping into a place where no one speaks your language and you can't read anything, but after a short while you get used to approaching people and attempting a few words from a phrasebook, and then you see how helpful the people here can be. I would recommend anyone come to St Petersburg.
