Our room here in St. Petersburg is amazing. Our driver (and possibly translator too?) requested a corner room for us, so we have a marvelous view! Check it out:
(Okay, I don't think the video works. I think it's too big... We'll try to figure something out later. But take our word for it, it is beautiful here! Even with the rain)
We meet our in-country coorinator in about a half an hour. She'll meet us in our room and go over what to expect this week, particularly tomorrow. After that, we may walk down the street (with our coats, it's chilly and rainy here!) to a place our driver recommended for dinner. Known for it's "pies," he said, which I'm guessing are not for dessert.
We don't have Internet in our room, so we are accessing it in the hotel lobby. We hope to have the chance to update you guys as much as we can! We love you all and are SO thankful you are all on this journey with us!
