    ... of firewood stacked up beside them. I guess they'll need it soon. Breakfast at the hotel was similar to what we ate in Denmark but the fish is smoked salmon. Yum!

    Eric decided to stay at the hotel for the day and catch up on some work while I went into the Touring Cars base. Jarkko gave me a tour of their base when I first arrived. In a side corridor just past the entrance, I saw what looked like ...

    ... the archipelago. The scenery here is beautiful and green, with tiny of islands dotted with beautiful homes. After the harbor cruise, we tasted some local fare at the market. Emily had salmon soup, which I opted for octopus rings. We both sampled these tiny little fish, that were whole and fried. You just ate the entire thing.

    ... on the River Neva allows excellent views of many of the stylish palaces, buildings and bridges. Everyone sits outside but it is really chilly at the end of the hour even with blankets. We wander back to the hotel the decide to explore the nearest bar, The Telegraph. It looks like an English pub inside with a good choice of beer but the barmaid has difficulty finding red wine!
