Travel theme: Statues

My mind is wandering. I am ready for another travel adventure. Anywhere but here. Some place sunny.

St. Petersburg was quite lovely in September. My Russian colleagues thought I needed a heavier coat when it rained. The wet weather balanced out with the balmy last days of summer, melting into autumn.
