A trip to Russia: Part 1

Breakfast at the Rachmaninov Hotel in St. Petersburg was sumptuous.


Although we had hopes of finding the old section of Novgorod quainter and more reminiscent of our impressions of old Russia, we were impressed by the centuries-old buildings that were still standing. “My father must have been in this building,” Vera would say. We had a nice dinner in a sedate cafe and the maitre d’ called a taxi and we rushed off to the bus station for another three and a half-hour ride home.
