... the Prodigal Son amongst others, we're on to Da Vinci and just a few of the hundreds of Madonna and Child studies there are within these walls. Rafaello and too many more follow.Today we'll only see the Royal apartments, Italian masters and some of the Egyptian collection. We're travelling with a guy that has just learnt his relative is one of the most important Russian painters of the 19th century - he didn't know this, our tour guide informs him, but ...

Wow, wow, wow. What a beautiful city. The streets, the buildings, the rivers and canals, the cathedrals, the women (kinky). It's fantastic!

We may have skipped a lot, but we were still there for over an hour and a half! Next, we finished the day at St. Isaac's Cathedral, the building of gold, silver, and ...

... style, went down an escalator that went down 22 levels to what seem to us a very old railway set up but they are very proud of it. No matter what way we looked at it St Petersberg & surrounds were just awe inspiring to see, sad that so much opulence is wasted on stuff but on the other hand unreal to see it live pictures never do this type of place justice. Just a shame we had to see it in bad weather but it is just how I imagined Russia would be. ...
