From Russia with LOVE!

Please click "play" to get into the mood for this blog post....Ready? Here we go!
 Hello, my dear blog friends! I am waving hi to you from Russia today! 
 Yup, you've got that right! I am in St. Petersburg to be exact! 
 By the time you read this, I would be just getting ready for my tour in Hermitage Museum
My daughter had suggested to me that I should make a card for each of the major cities that I will be visiting from this trip. GREAT idea, huh? I am sure I will be immensely inspired by the sights that I will be seeing in St. Petersburg.
 Wonder what I will be making...well, you will have to find out after my Baltic cruise . Now I have got a big boat to catch....  
увидимся позже (see you later!)

Wow, I know you are having a fabulous time in that beautiful city. I was there way back in 1973 (it was still Leningrad then). I hope you enjoyed your tour of the Hermitage Museum, it was the highlight of my trip so many years ago. Looking forward to seeing how your trip inspires you!
