We visited the city of St. Petersburgh for four days. It is a big city in Russia and is beautiful. We spent a day with Dr Kostorov, meeting his staff and enjoyed his hospitality. We traveled thru the city by bus and took lot of pictures to have a glimpse of the life and culture. We visited the Hermitage, the cathedral and the museums. We could not see the beautiful exhibits that were brought to Jackson, MS in 1998 by the then first lady Pat Fordice to the museum called --PALACES OF ST. PETERSBURG. We had an enjoyable stay.
