Back from the great white north
Il Sette Bello returned to Rome a few days ago, back from the frozen tundra of St. Petersburg. It's only 25 degrees centigrade warmer here. That's how cold it was in St. Petersburg, and how balmy it is here!
St. Petersburg, unlike Moscow, is a wholely European city with magnificent 18th-Century palaces, meandering canals and quaint cobble streets. It's also frigidissimo. This is only my second trip to Russia. I can't wait to return. It's an overwhelming sensory experience. Rather than blather on, I'll let the pics do the explaining.
Oh, in case you're curious, I wasn't chained to a bar this time.
