... returning to the same cafeteria again today for an early lunch. Afterwards, it was on to the sobering, yet inspiring, Siege of Leningrad Memorial Museum. This museum illustrates the capture, occupafion, suffering, and ultimate victory of St, Petersburg residents who were trapped behind a Nazi blockade for almost 900 days during WWII. About a million people died from shelling, starvation, and disease during the ordeal. Food was extremely scarce and some people sustained ...

... 2km from the station to our hostel. The weather was of course bad, grey, gloomy, and often times rainy. We found the hostel, no English spoken here but we managed. After settling in we found a Russian cafeteria style restaurant (very common). We picked a few items and had a very nice meal.

St Petersburg serves as almost a perfect syllogism for Russian ...

... it is when the canal is frozen over and the griffins are covered in snow. I think that this little delightful whimsical bits of architecture or design which surprise you as you're walking through the city is what makes it such a magical city.

By the time we got back, we crashed into bed. It was only 8pm, but we were done for the day. It was our last full day in Saint Petersburg and we spent it well. Tomorrow is a day we will spend mostly traveling, which will be a nice break for ...

... open water of the Neva, but watching three different bridges go up was fun. Even with the overcast skies, while it got dark blue in the middle of the cruise, it never got 100% dark. By the time we got back to the apartment, the sky was already medium blue again.

Technically, the cruise event should be on our 6/18 blog, but it was before our 'big sleep' and I'm not sure if I'll get the last day's blog done timely since we have a big day of travel coming ...
