Where I stayed
What I did
The Church of the Spilled Blood
Rain and some brilliant churches.
We also visited St Nicholas' and the famous St Isaac's Cathedral, the fourth biggest cathedral in the world behind St Peter's in Vatican City, St Paul's in London and St Bruce's in Florence (not really Bruce - not sure of the name).
We wandered around the streets and parks, the leaves are falling and it is truly beautiful. Our command of the Russian language has extended to 4 words - yes, no, thank you and goulash. Have a guess what we had for dinner tonight ?? Also discovered that in Russia Chardy is not popular so I had to drink............. wait for it.........sauv blanc. I know, embarrassing but hey when in Rome.....
