I’m back in the States after a 20-hour flight, four security check points, two luggage check-ins (for one fat bag), an extra charge for an obese suitcase and three cocktails from airports in St. Petersburg, Helsinki and New York.

So far, I haven’t kept track of how many photos and videos I shot of St. Petersburg. I am working on few more photoblog entry about my Russian trip.

Bear in Historic Heart

ST. PETERSBURG – “We don’t have bears in Russia,” said one of my students.

Fair enough. So, I brought my own world-weary bears to St. Petersburg. This time, Andre had a chance to check out the sights and sounds of the Historic Heart.

I had some free time before my classes, so we did our own walking tour over the Neva River. Now Andre wants to share his thoughts on our excursion.

ST. PETERSBURG – Sometimes, pay back can be a bear. As you can see, Louie wanted to make sure he had a chance to do some sightseeing in St. Petersburg.

Pay Back

It took my bears a few days to get over the jet lag. I think by the middle of the week, they were going stir-crazy in the hotel room.
