We made it from Moscow to St. Petersburg on the night train, meaning we are now on our third and final city. SPb is rainy, beautiful, and grand; we have an excellent guide, Sergei, who has already managed to show us some of the city's architectural and cultural highlights. A brief walking tour of the city, meeting with Russian students, lunch in the university cafeteria, and trip to the Hermitage (from where I write this) have been some of the day's highlights. Can I just say that the Hermitage has a hell of a lot of chandeliers.
