Bye bye for now.

I'm off to St Petersburg (the Russian one) tomorrow morning for a week or so.

More about that when I get back.

Cheers for all the comments - keep em coming!

Have a good trip, Roger! Inspiration for your next novel, perhaps?

Watch out for the muggers on the Nevsky Prospect Metro station ...

Send me vodka!

Hello, crimeficreader, disgruntled and richard!

Back from St P. I'll post something about it when I get a chance. But cfr, yes, I was looking for inspiration, and indeed researching the novel I'm currently working on, which I have insanely set in St Petersburg.

I didn't get mugged, disgruntled. Were you?

It'll have to be virtual vodka, Richard.

Not mugged exactly - details here - but an unpleasant enough experience that I probably wouldn't have had the courage to make friends with a randomly helpful Russian the way you did. In fact you seem to have had better luck all round in St. P than I did. Probably because you're a nicer person...

That does sound unpleasant. I was lucky. I did think about taking my laptop, but decided just to take a notebook (of the paper variety) and a few pens. I was worried about my camera all the time. Andrey warned me to be alert. But I was fortunate, I realise that.
