Showers and a change before walking a few blocks from our hotel (which is well situated) to the Nicholeavsky Palace for a Russian Folklore performance.

He was good friends with Louis 14th and wanted a more over the top palace and gardens! and he succeeded! On the way there we passed Putin's "country house".

In the '80's, he went into a forest in the middle of nowhere for a record exchange fair with about 300 other fans, trying to buy Led Zeppelin or AC DC albums and ...
