... room, dining rooms etc. Lots of glittering gold and precious gems on display along with exquisite wooden floors of a different design in each room. Later we went into the 'Small Hermatige' and viewed some of the extensive art works along with sculptures, mosaics, interior gardens, etc. Thankfully our guide was able to share an insight into works of Rembrant, De Vinci, Van Dyke, etc. Far too much to take in ... one would need a lifetime of visits to do this place any justice. ...

Today the sun rose 4:39 a.m. and the sun won’t hit the horizon until around 11:00 p.m. – it’ll be a long bright day.

... of the bodies.

That evening a few of us went to a folklore show. I was blown away by the voices of the men who sung acapella. I have no clue as to what they sung about however can tell you that whatever they were singing about was full of such emotion.

We watched performances by various cultural groups, the women looked so stunning in their beautiful traditional dress and the men's Cossack dancing almost looked as if their legs were not attached to their bodies. ...
