  1. I really enjoyed your reflections on the city. I’ve stayed in exactly that part of the Astoria myself more than once–perhaps the same room!–and your descriptions bring it all vividly back to me. That period of late May into early June, the maritime smell of the air, the maritime sounds. Wish I had thought to clean my teeth with vodka, a great idea. Your historical and cultural comments on St. Petersburg are quite interesting too. I wish you would post more of them here. Some images will stay with me, like that of the serfs dropping from the walls of the Hermitage during construction.
