We were tired after the museum visit, so had lunch then walked a bit more in St. Petersburg as it's our last opportunity to be downtown. Security was pretty evident everywhere, as the G20 starts tomorrow. Every day that we've been downtown, we've seen brides having pictures taken in one spot or another. Although people ...
