Woke up about 10, it wasn't a bad sleep really, you kind of drift in and out along with the movement of the train, i went to the toilet to freshen up but it was jank, so i just brushed my teeth and doused myself in deodorant. Stepping off the train in St Petersburg the air was so much fresher, I hate to say it, but it was nice to get away from the heat, we caught the metro to our hostel, which was for once easy to find, it even had a small sign outside, the luxury continued upstairs with recycled flip flops provided for free, and a room nearly twice the size of the last ones with two beds a table and two chairs, the lady at the desk tried to charge us £8 to register which she said was the law, I explained in my best Russian that the law was if you stayed a week and she let it go, knowing this was a way of them squeezing a bit more out if us. I ironed some clothes for the first time since leaving home and had a shower, It felt great to get out of my clothes as I had slept in them and been wearing them for the last 2 days, the shower had a radio inside and jets that sprayed out of the wall plus a kind of rain shower above with a light, I stayed in there way too long, but came out feeling great. We went to the first museum ever built in Petes (thats what the locals call St Petersburg) it was meant to be a collection of the weird and wonderful a bit like Ripleys believe it or not, but after half an hour I couldn't believe - how s*** it was and wondered where the weird stuff was, then we got to the second floor and I wished I hadn't found it, the walls were full of shelves stacked with pickled babies and foetuses with abnormalities like aliens and one that looked like a frog, I skimmed the room quickly and left, it didn't look like anyone was enjoying it, it was kind of like looking at a car crash when you know you shouldn't. After we sat by the river and had a drink then went back to the hostel becsuse Steve had a head ache. I read a lot about the police scamming people that haven't registered even though you didn't need to, so decided to cough up the £8 at the hostel just for piece of mind, I started to write my blog but fell asleep, (guess that about sums it up) when I woke up hours later at around midnight it was still bright outside, they call this the midnight sun season or white nights, the sun sets around midnight but it never gets dark then it rises around 3am. Outside people where sat in the park as if it was lunch time and across the road there was washing strung up, It's like being given extra bonus hours every day, i think i could get use to this. I went back to sleep and decided to have another crack at Petes tomorrow.
