Aunt Kelly got back from the US on Saturday and we celebrated the holidays. Thank you thank you Mom, Grandma, Aunt Debbie and Aunt Barbara. I’ve wanted a digital camera of my very own for so very long, and have been putting it off for well over a year now. Now my blog readers will be subjected to all sorts of artsy-fartsy pictures of St. Petersburg.

The view from Kostia’s kitchen window. New high-rises in the sleeping districts.

I like the sepia option.
