Already packed half my bag for the flight to St. Petersburg early Monday morning. I am meeting Prof. Dr. Peter von Longlegs at the airport before we board an Aeroflot flight to St. P. We are the guests of Petersburg University.
They are hosting a conference of academics from all quarters of the globe. I got an invitation via Peter. A first time visit for me. My experience of Russia is Moscow airport in 1982. I trust this will be very different. Hope to take lots of photos and share on my return. Please note the following:
