Peterhof is absolutely gorgeous! The park is so quite and serene even when filled with tourists. It is huge! We walked form one side to ¾ of the way in about 1 leisurely hour. It is beautiful. There are fountains everywhere! However, most of them are replicas, as are the buildings because Hitler decided to throw a party here to celebrate his taking of St. Pete (before he actually had taken it, and Stalin decided that was NOT going to happen, so he bombed the place himself. Typical soviet ideas, however, some of the statures are original because they buried them to protect them from the upcoming bombing.

And…gasp…it actual got WARM today, not hot, but comfortable in jeans, tank top and sweater. I got to take off my jacket!!! :)

We plan on going to the store tonight so that we can get a few things. I’m planning on getting a pot because the one we have in here puts flakes into your food of whatever is coating the bottom of it, not cool.

I have fallen in love with the peach juice they have here by Cad (? Not really sure if that is the name brand).

We don’t currently have any plans for Sunday, I would like to try to find a Orthodox Church to attend, just to try it out, but not sure how that is going to work out.

See ya around the globe!
