Glimpse of the World

I am not a photographer, but these are some photos from the places I have been and found interesting. I hope they give you just a little glimpse of the world.

And then there was Russia

After a night in the Latvia airport we were finally on our way to Saint Petersburg. We spent the cloudy cold days visiting museums such as the State Museum, Russian Museum and the Hermitage. I think that you could spend a week in the Hermitage and still not see everything. The place must have over 100 rooms and filled with Russian, European and Asian art. Spectacular, but you need some redbulls to do it all in one go. We broke it up by visiting some recommended cafes and pubs leading, in some cases, to the consumption of $5 bottles of Soviet Champagne followed by a juice called “birth sap”. 

One night we manage to get tickets to the famous St. Petersburg ballet for the performance of the Magical Nut. It is a precursor to the Nutcracker and perfect for children and uncultured foreign university students. On the way home the boys finally lived out their dreams by finding some “Khlav kalash” which featured some unidentified street meat served to us by a one-eyed man just outside our hostel. The boys ended up ordered two and one of them (not mentioning names) paid for it a few hours later in the hostel. 

Our first overnight 3rd class train ride left for Moscow at 11:30pm, we would arrive in the morning in preparation for V-Day.
