I’m now back in the UK. Again. It’s wonderful with the warm sun and green fields, leafy trees and chirping birds. What a contrast to Magadan in the Russian Far East.
And the girl in me is rather enjoying having a choice of clothes to put on in the morning, conditioner as well as shampoo and even a hairdrier! Then there’s the food… I ate more salad today than 3 months in Russia.
Anyway, I now have the slightly unenviable task of sorting through my thousands of photos, now that I’ve managed to recover the deleted ones.
For starters, I’m jumping to the end – St Petersburg. My last week in Russia was a cultural feast of art and museums, palaces and grandiose cathedrals. It is a beautiful place. But there is also a grittier urban side on the streets if you look beyond the tourist attractions…
Hopefully over the next couple of weeks I have time to post up so more photos. And once I’m settled back in, I’ll send an update on my next plans… I’m still working on them.
