I can’t believe I had never heard of the Peacock Clock before. Another notable thing I saw was a gigantic urn made of solid green marble that took up most of the room it was in.

That evening we had tickets to the Meriinksy Theatre to see a Ballet! Our seats were terrible and I could barley see the stage, it was fun.

They even gave us a bag of treats to take away for tomorrow , cakes, savoury buns and biscuits all made by them, result! So back to our very warm hotel and room and try to right this blog but too tired so this is being done a day ...
