... from WA. There were some hilarious stories coming out then. And trust the WA guys to be the last drinkers! I ran into Wendy McGruther's Uncle, Tony McGruther who is from QASSP and later APPA. He is a really nice guy. I met an interesting bloke who is Principal of a Finish school in St Petersburg, Russia. That is just across the gulf. He works there with his wife and they teach Finish curriculum and pedagogy in the school for only ...

There are wide tree lined streets, and a pretty harbour. At the harbour we tried fried fish that looked like white bait, but were ...
The St. Petersburg station Adimiralskaya is 282 feet below the ground. The third bell telling us the show was going to start didn't ring until after 7:30. It was a full house. I really liked the 4th part where the white and black swans were dancing together. I've seen only 3 ballets. So I'm not an expert on any of this. It was very nice. I was able to tell Elvira how happy I was about the ballet. I saw her in passing at the hostel. I keep forgetting ...
