ST. PETERSBURG – I survived a 17-hour flight and checked into my hotel on the Petrogradsky Island.

Today, I played tourist with the help of my hosts from St. Petersburg State University. They gave me a driving and walking tour of the campus as well as the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood and other art highlights of the Historic Heart district.


On Monday, I teach my first journalism class. Good times.

    Love that church. My brother used to call it the cathedral with the onions on top (he’s a foodie, even with architecture – lol).
