Summer and St. Petersburg

The above sight is from our apartment window, from earlier today. It’s coming from the trees. Beautiful. (Nevermind the sound, I was on the phone.)

I was in St. Petersburg for the past few days with my entire company, some eighty people. I had not been to Russia before. My wary expectations of the country were devastated, and I no longer have any reservations against going there. It is a beautiful city. The locals seem to not speak English, but we managed. I had some five hours of strolling around time, and it was barely enough to see one end of the Nevsky Prospekt (go Gogol!).

The weather was so grand that I burnt my neck for the first time this year. We were on a three-hour cruise on the Neva, and the sun just glared down, bringing the temperature up to +26 Celsius (78 Fahrenheit). Nice.
