Ra Ra Rasputin

Sorry about the title but at least it fits the location! Just back from a long day at the Hermitage. One can certainly understand why there was a revolution in 1917 the opulence of the Russian Royal Family is truly staggering. Interesting how Soviet period has virtually disappeared from sight here in St Petersburg. It is a beautiful city and masses to look at.

Enjoyed looking at the art a great collection of French Impressionists. My visit to the Winter Palace will enhance future tellings of a comic Russian Folk Tale (a favourite at Wick Court). Also brought a fantastic Russian Folk Tale book to develop my repertoire. Will blog properly when back home.
