Getting in very late, I find my hotel by around 10:30pm, but am confused because it is still so light out that I feel like its 6pm. I'm a bit frustrated because the great hotel with a big bed, laundry service and internet turns out to be a crappy old soviet era building with the smallest bed I've ever seen, no internet and laundry service that includes washing your clothes in the sink. I head out and find a great place to do sushi on Nevsky prospect while seeing some of the city center and doing some great people watching.
I walk around for a while and hit up a few bars and wind up getting out of the last bar after the sun rose so I never really saw darkness. By the time I get home at 6am the sun is up. Side note: I have never seen so many beautiful women in one place... not even Australia comes close!
