Letters from my trip to the Baltics.
Today’s Russian outing was to the Hermitage Museum. It was the Palace of, among others, Peter the Great, and it truly was great! It was enormous and absolutely stuffed with art. These patterned floors were just one small detail amongst thousands.
Stairway to heaven.
I encountered several notable stairways throughout the day. The red carpet above did indeed rise toward a ceiling painted with the heavens (see photo 1 below). Following that, see some photos of my travels in the opposite direction to the underground. Here are some shots I snapped while riding the longest, steepest escalator I have ever encountered. Not for the faint of heart, but it got me to the subway tunnel to catch my train!
