Where I stayed
Had breakfast at UB a beef soup with boiled rice which was great
Went to sleep for a couple of hours before exploring the town, everything is closed today as its Women's day, so the whole town is buying cakes and flowers for mothers, girlfriends and wives. All very nice.
In a celebration we went out to a place recommended to us and had the biggest plate of food I've seen in two weeks. My shrunken stomach could not handle it. It was beautiful, a real taste sensation in comparison to cat food. I had Mongolian lamb kebabs and Erica had..... oh yes a cheeseburger. But it was bloody good. Had two pints and a half pints and the bill came to a ten pounds extravagant but necessary. Our accommodation has now dropped to 5 pounds a night from 11 so we are still under budget. Hooray.
Got chatting to a few people in the hostel and amazingly a really funny German guy was leaving who insisted I must join him for a few Vodkas. Still not eaten since lunch and now its bed time.
Erica edit: Received an email today from The Soul Kitchen in St Petersburg to say that they have my immigration card and can send it on to me!!! It must have fallen out of my passport when they were taking all of their photocopies. Bit late now, my visa expires for Russia tomorrow!!! Might make a half decent traveller yet!!!
