... with the first tour being a 4 hour affair taking in Peter and Paul fortress and St. Isaac's Cathederal. All in all this was a really nice tour with some amazing architecture and quite tolerable crowds. Again there was the inevitable stop at the souvenir shop which is now becoming irritating. How many dolls can people buy and as for Vodka tasting didn't see one bottle purchased. For a better appreciation of these sites (and for others mentioned, it is worth Googling ...

Anyway, back to the movie. We saw "Ouija", a scary movie. And my god, it was ...
... fit in well. Then once back in the hostel, I met a guy from Colombia who was headed out to Gamla Stan, the old town/Stockholm's first neighborhood. I decided to join him! And there was an Australian guy just chilling in the lounge area, so we invited him too! So off we went to Gamla Stan. It was a really easy walk.
