In 1990, I went to what was then called Leningrad...you just brought back memories of that trip. My 17 year old self was overwhelmed with the sheer amount of everything - art, gold leaf, size of the castles. Even now, looking through my photo album from that trip can cause me just to wonder. You have a gift for expressing what it is like to be there.

I also kept a diary while on that trip...interestingly, I predicted the fall of the Soviets within a year. I was off by one month. I also can't eat cucumbers - had them for every meal (the guide said "It was a good year for them").
