      The staff were polite and very helpful, the room I was in was basic but comfortable, if a little hot and humid, however street noise could be quite intrusive, but the shower, bathroom and kitchen facilities were very good and well maintained. Don't be put off by the entrance hall to the apartments when you are buzzed into the building, once you get to the apartment upstairs it does get a lot better!

      We're not to get an alarm call tomorrow (for the first time) but are trusted to be ready for tomorrow's tour at 10 am.

      Already the guide has mentioned that on Sunday as we travel by train to Moscow he wants to see our flight times out of Moscow on Wednesday so that he can arrange transfers to the airport. We're not ready to leave yet!

      ... summer palace of the Romanovs, an experience by itself. Vendors of all kinds came into the wagons to show their ware (books, maps, needles, pots and pans, what have you) and held their vendor talks, which we of course did not understand. To our surprise they did sell to passengers.
      Then the summer palace itself: before entering we had to find out how to actually purchase a ticket. It turned out that this was only possible once we had bought a ticket ...

      ... throated Russian lament, apparently all about Lake Baikal. Very apt I thought. After this wonderful gift we stopped off to eat Russian fried meat pastry thing-os, washed down with a couple of local Vasilevskiy brews, both unfiltered, one dark and one pale. After dinner they brought me to their flat. I showered and we talked. And at 12:45 with the sun just over the horizon we walked back to the Neva to witness the spectacle of ...

      As if we were not all arted out yesterday we went today to the State Russian museum. This one is specifically for Russian art and we were lucky enough to be able to see a Grigoriev exhibition! I saw some of his work at the 'From Russia' exhibition at the National Gallery a couple of years ago so it was great to see more, plus Simon liked him, we agree on a modern artist!

      The building is the Mikhailovsky Palace (the Grand Duke Pavlovitch's house) so as well ...

      ... ornate reception/ballroom. This room, the Great Hall or Bright Room, is the full width of the palace and is the largest room in the palace. Large windows and mirrors alternate along the walls, and a large image on the ceiling seem to make the room feel even larger. The walls are covered in gold ornamentation and there is an intricate parquet floor.

      Just beyond the Great Hall is a formal dining room called the ...
