St. Petersburg – Day 1

I am still having a lot of trouble sleeping, I was up most of the night and finally dozed off around 5:30am, I woke up with my alarm at 7:30 so tired I thought I might be getting sick. I decided to sacrifice part of day one to sleep and managed to sleep until 11am.

I headed out walking in a very cold and wet Russian spring day, the Hermitage, the Modern Art Gallery, a Russian cafe for lunch and a Georgian/Uzbek place for dinner, the day is over, I am exhausted and overwhelmed, it’s a city on an insane scale, I love it.
