Dear Michael,
Here I am in Saint Petersburg in Russia with my family! It’s a great place! Yesterday we visited the Elaginoostrovsky Palace of wax figures and went on some amazing rides at a fun park. This morning we took a steamship ride on the river and this afternoon we are going to the Dolphinarium. I can’t wait to see the dolphins do clever tricks there!
Tomorrow night we are going to the famous Puppet Theatre to see a play. There are so many amazing things to do here! You must visit Saint Petersburg one day!
See you next week.
