... going to attack Russia!! she heard it herself when Obama said they would invoke Nato against Russia! She tells us Russian women are goddesses, they do all the work and the men?? well who knows...she tells little Russian jokes and life in St Petersburg slowly unfolds as she talks.

With this choice it made sense to have dinner here before retiring. I liked the way you could see all the escalators at once which gave it a modern feel.
