Moscow to St. Petersburg - 2011

Trip Home and Recap

St. Petersburg Sunrise at 4:58

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

The alarm went off at 3:50 AM as the bus for the airport was scheduled to leave at 4:45.  There was a large group of us connecting in Paris, and it was only about a 15 minute ride to the rather small St. Petersburg airport.  The flights were on time, but we did experience over an hours wait in line when we had to go through security again in Paris.  The flight to MSP, about 9 hours, was good, but we were too tired to finish labeling our pictures and writing the blog (they kept us so busy in St. Petersburg that we didn’t have time).  We arrived at MSP about 1:10 PM (10:10 PM St.  Petersburg time) and it took about an hour to go through immigration and customs.  We got to our condo about 2:30 and managed to stay up until almost our normal bedtime.
