Day 6 - Thursday

- We sleep in late, and catch an afternoon train north and west of St. Petersburg towards the Bay of Finland. John finds a quality bootleg copy of Anastasia at a train station kiosk and gives it to Roman for his birthday. We buy dominoes to pass the time (John & Sam vs. Roman & Greg). First we play in a koфe house (cafe), then on the train seats.
- Mountain biking through the forest to the Bay was a unique experience. The trees were tall and spread out, but they blocked a lot of sunlight. The terrain was mostly flat, with the exception of a couple big downhills. We found a "wilderness" cache, bought a huge plastic bag of goldfish (which lasted all the way to Frankfurt), and had dinner at a restaurant on the water.
- Three borschts, a greek salad, and lamb and chicken kabobs to share. We see "Schnappi das kleine Krokodil" on the TV.
- Back to St. Petersburg to watch Anastasia, which John rightly called, "the american tribute to russian history (sort of)."
