St. Petersburg, Russia

September 3, 2013

My long awaited trip to Russia was a little disappointing. I, of course, refused to purchase a tour and relied on getting around myself. Mostly did a good job but could not find a couple of cathedrals. The Hermitage Museum was enormous and had a lot of beautiful sculptures and paintings from the Masters such as Monet, Picasso, and countless others. Unfortunately I am not a big fan but do like Monet. After a couple hours here i started back to where the ships City Tour (provides only transport) was located. Fortunately on way back I found a McDonalds and supper for the boat. Beautiful city, its just I have seen more beautiful. I climbed 262 steps up the Colonade at St. Isaacs Cathedral for a panoramic view of St. Petersburg. Then on to the Hermitage Museum.
