I personally have always had a great time in Russia every time I have gone. I stumbled across a webpage detailing someone elses visit to St Petersburg, where it seems like he grumbles about everything from the moment he leaves his country. (Admittedly he did seem to have a problem with a hotel room. I wonder how he went about resolving it?) Calling it the "Evil Empire" seems to show that he is in some kind of strange mindset. He also seemed to only eat KFC and drink Pepsi. He didn't like the Summer Gardens. The fountain wasn't impressive enough for him. Surely when you go abroad you want it to be different? You want to try their foods, their drinks, experience life as they experience it, enjoy the differences? Or is it only me?
Read his trip to St Petersburg, and then read mine. I wonder why I enjoyed it more?
This Dutch guy seemed to have really enjoyed himself too. It's a really well-written account, with good pics, and sound clips too.
