Dear Family and Friends,
The sun made a brief appearance this afternoon. Mostly though, the sky is gray and the drizzle incessant. The air is humid and chilly.
Nonetheless, I make my patented strolls around this surprising city, up and down Nevsky Prospekt, a busy eight lane boulevard lined with smart shops, bistros and restaurants and pastel stone buildings. It really is lovely here.
