I’m home after an adventurous encounter with Saint Petersburg. I’m now
slowly but steadily rewinding myself back to my normal life and getting used
to schooldays again. I’m hesitant when it comes to describing our voyage and
trying to do it justice with words. In St. Petersburg we fought sneaky and
vicious mosquitos in our room which turned one of my roommate into the
elephant man. Johnny also tangoed with the mosquitos and returned home
with 72 bites. I’m not sure if he still had blood running through his veins.
Pee-Man was busy on the streets establishing what will be his nickname
forever which got us tangled up in a russian night adventure. To balance the
trip we had some laid back basic sightseeing tours, visited art schools, saw
the Kazan Cathedral, Church of the Savior on Blood, Hermitage and
KunstKamera museum which exhibits one of the most haunting things I’ve
seen to this day. We also got fancy and went to see some ballet action and
got raw/semi life chicken served to our plate to name a few. With 6 dudes
crammed in a small room things escalate from good to bad to ugly. We ran
out of fresh towels on day two which led to a necessary whiff test out of a
pile of soaked towels each time when taking a shower. Only the devil knew
where those towels had been. On top of this situation we were dealing with
a growing furniture malfunction which impaired our sleeping abilities.
But Notorious B.I.G was always there for us when needed. I think it’s safe to
say that we weren’t very reluctant to go home when the time came. Truly a
wondrous city though. I’m going through a bunch of photos and making a
small series from the trip. Here is one to set the example.
