The weekend arrived and brought with it the joys of St Petersburg – So many opulent places to visit, so much less opulent when you look behind the scenes.
We managed to get a good walk round this time, but still only allowed in the places on the tourist route. The customs building is as forbidding as ever, and still no sign of a smile anywhere until you’re allowed out on the other side! Wall to wall sunshine, both days – apparently unheard of here.
The evening entertainment was stunning – difficult to get pictures because of the lighting, but they were amazing performers.
We’re still getting beautiful sunsets, too 😉
