I wasn't feeling well, and yesterday I had my root canal finished. It was an hour and half process, and it involved holding my head still. I have lots of photos from the past few days/weeks.
I have realized that Tsarske Selo, is a different location then Peterhof palace. I am trying to unravel it all.
But I did finally make it to the Amber Room. It's amazing, and unremarkable all at the same time. I learned that the room was moved around to different locations. So it was never set in stone, at Tsarske Selo.
The majority of the palaces are dipped in gold and ornate, and extremely huge. It is a very interesting concept, a palace when you live in the united states.
More pictures to come, honest.

There was a flood I believe, or a flood, and a young woman held in the penal part of the the compound. She died of course. The marker on the wall, the not gold marker is the indicator of where the flood water reached. I can't imagine the city being flooded.

Here is me wrangling a gun, (actually air rifle with pellet.) with Loki next to me. Sad story, Loki couldn't properly hold the "rifle" and pull the trigger at the same time.

We go here quite a bit. It's usually free, but this was a Friday evening so there was a cost to come in. Realize that anything inside the park also has a cost to it. It is known as either Leisure Island, Kirov, or Yelgin Island. A lot of sections of Saint Petersburg gets the moniker, "Island", but I am not sure if they are technically islands or not. If they are man made islands, then does that technically count as an actual island?
