I’ve learned a lot during my time in Russia but one of the things I am most proud of is my skill using a hot plate. We have no oven or real stove. We do have a microwave but Russia doesn’t have many things that are microwavable. Therefore we must cook everything on a hot plate. Because I quickly got tired of pasta and grilled cheese I started to try some new things out. Today I woke up and made omelets for my suite. I’ve never been big on cooking however I have really come to enjoy it. The omelets were great according to my suitemates (although they are too nice to ever say otherwise) and I think I’m going to have to try making something new now.

Earlier tonight was saw the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Yuri Temirkanov. It was all Tchaikovsky music and it was amazing. I am certainly not a classical music connoisseur however my roommate is and she filled me in on all the important things I should know about the concert. Apparently it was sold out and many people were trying to get tickets but couldn't. After that it was a long walk back in the wind and rain in heels. The past week has been extremely dark, windy, and rainy. I think this is the way Russia is supposed to be and we just got lucky the past two and ½ months.
