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.
ANDRE: SO MUCH WATER IN SAINT PETERSBURG. ANDRE PLAYS BY RIVER.
ANDRE PLAYS WITH FISHERMEN. FISHERMEN LOOK AT ANDRE FUNNY.
ANDRE LOOKS UP AT ALEXANDER COLUMN INSIDE PALACE SQUARE. SO MANY OLD AND PRETTY BUILDINGS IN SAINT PETERSBURG. ANDRE WANTS TO GO INSIDE THE HERMITAGE.
I didn’t have time for an art museum trip. I promised my bear that we would go inside the Winter Palace soon.
