... on Saturday morning, and the streets were deserted. Our bus driver sped (and I mean that literally) down wide streets, and before long, we arrived at Catherine's Palace.

We were met by a five-man brass band dressed in colorful uniforms.

"Where are they from?" they asked our guide. When she told them most of us were from America, they quickly launched into the opening stanzas of the Star Spangled Banner, and ...

After breakfast I headed out to Peterhof palace, which is a little way out of the city. I could've caught a bus or a train there, but instead I caught the Meteor hydrofoil there. I really wanted to get out onto the Baltic Sea before I left. The boat left ...

... no evidence of the
former Soviet Union in St. Petersburg. The city is modern, clean,
and, we saw virtually no indication of any poverty or homelessness;
and, we believe we visited every corner of the city. As the weather
