scottlf congratulations, must be a big stress reliever to have yuor visa after four weeks,
good luck with your trip and happy outcome, can't wait till I am posting a so long thread, just now getting started. wess
you're gonna luuuurve Spb, an absolutely magnificent city. Doing it organized is best because then you'll have guides you can understand hence really appreciate what you'll see.
If you've not been in Russia yet I also can guarantee it's the last place where you'll ask to be beamed up, unless of course Heaven is where you're headed.
Enjoy, and good luck.
I already have in mind what I intend to bring, but what are the general suggestions for cash for a week stay in St. Petersberg? I'll have credit cards, too, but you may not neccesarily depend on them working everwhere.
Worldtraveler thanks for you concern but I am O.K. I was close to telling her to go jump anyway.
Buck I have found an agency I knew abouy it before I left so that answers your question too I think dream. I am sitting in the agency now using there internet. I have met many girls and have also made some good friends. The translator and I have formed a good friendship and she helps me for very little cost 40 grevners a day wich is abot $10 and she has even done some for free. I meet one girl 19 but there was a problem with her father which I could have persude but did not seem worth all the trouble. I meet a nice girl at the local cafe but she is working 17 per day and cannot see me for another 4 days but she is truly lovely. She was just at the cafe not in the agency. And of coarse I have had a very very good time with one girl if you all understand me correctly and we are surpose to meet today but she has not turned up yet. I do not want to jump to conclusions but generaly all is well and I still have 2 weeks to enjoy myself so that is what I will do. Catch up when I can
