Good morning from Russia!
I left my house at 9am Saturday and touched down in St. Petersburg, Russia at 5:30 pm Sunday. I am really tired and have not seen much (any!) of the city yet, but I m still surrounded by new things.

When I leave my room and take my room key with me, I automatically turn off all of the lights.

Everything will be just fine now!
