So this post was going to be basically all pictures, but blogger is being fussy so we'll just have to space things out I guess.... I'll put up a few and some info.
|Alexander Nevski Lavra - garden - aka the place where we buy amazing bread|
|Yep. I live near here.|
Tomorrow, we're going to Gatchina (this fortress thingy about 2 hours outside of Piter). Actually, I should post my list of excursions for those who don't speak Russian:
The Museum of the Blockade of Leningrad
A week-long excursion down the Volga
Ballet (Anna Karenina)
Pushkin (the place)
A tour of the Baltika beer factory
Museum of Dostoevski's appartment etc.
The Opera/Classical Music concert
