On Sunday Romney and I went to Cathrines Palace. We took some amazing photos which I can not post due to technical difficulties. Cathrines Palace including the Amber Room, was amazing and we left there with a strong desire to learn more about Russian history, add some gold leaf paint to our own homes and to buy some Amber. So off we went to a lovely souvineir shop. The ladies there were very helpful. Romney bought a couple of dolls for her girls. I bought a book of Russian fairy tales and we both bought a peace of amber. After that we went back to the hotel for a nice nap and then out to dinner. After dinner we spent the evening at the hotel watching Friends in Russian, drinking wine, eating chocolate, playing cards, and reading the Russian Fairytale book laughing about how much these stories will terrify our kids.
