    Lemon vodka? Never tried that - whats it like (and don't say like lemon). My favorate is Toffee Vodka.

    This is turning into a convo about vodka rather than Russia now. :rolleyes:

    It was quite nice, not sure if it beats regular vodka. There was also red hot chilli vodka, and vodka with an assortment of berries that I didn't try. I'm not sure about some of them...

    We were going to, but some guards started gathering and walking towards us when we displayed an interest. I guess it's illegal to gamble there at 16.

    Also in the Kremlin you aren't allowed to walk on the roads... if you do the guard blow whistles at you then start walking towards you with bats! There were these clueless Americans that managed almost to cross the road and sit on the grass, they would have been so dead. lol

    No it was really hot. In St. Petersburg there was no sunset because it was so far from the equator. Not that nice when you're trying to sleep and you get lots of light at 2:00am in the morning. Also another funny thing was the water, which came from the cleanest lake in Europe. Well, thanks to the old pipework, by the time it came to out taps there was a dangerous parasite in it so we were brushing our teeth with mineral water.

    Also there was this yellow stain on our sink that I can only guess came from elaving the tap dripping overnight.
