... for home. The cab driver we approached wanted 600 roubles to take us about 12oo metres to our hotel, so we politely told him to stick it and set off for a walk, slowly. We made it OK then up to our room to finish packing and put the bags into the storage room and check out just made it by 2:00pm. We went to the pub for a late lunch and more Hoegarden, for which John was acquiring something of a liking! After lunch we sat in the sun until Julia arrived and it was off ...

... rich wife had another chapel or church built there in his memory. It was a base for trade and a place of protection for the rich Russians in time of war and was never destroyed or taken. Khruschev actually ordered the restoration of it which was a surprise to all especially the villagers and our very devout guide was quick to point out all of St Cyril's 'miracles'.

We didn’t have time to go inside the palace, which I heard paled in comparison to the other palaces, but it is known for its gardens. Peter the Great, like I mentioned before, was fascinated with assimilating Russia with European styles and technology and he brought over the engineers who knew how to make fountains, which were the newest fad at the time.

... beautiful, filled with many old trees and very green. We passed a booth where for 500 roubles you could get dressed up in period costume...which I couldn't resist. Can't say that was on my list of things to do in Russia!

Following the Fontanka River, we made our way back to Nevskii Prospekt. On the way, Elena pointed out to me a very unusual but cute monument. During the siege of Leningrad, the population was starving. At first they ate dogs, then ...
