In the train I share the compartment with an older lady, who first prepares her bed, until she suddenly turns around and asks me where I am from and what I am doing here, quickly reminding me why I enjoy the train rides in this region so much, as I always missed the socializing aspect in Germany. She talks so much about Tajikistan it got me curious. At some point of time she starts talking to two girls and asks them to join us and talk to me. I love Babushkas, they always want to hook me up with somebody. But for the most part of the train ride I decide to have a rest to be fit for Petersburg.


In Petersburg I find my way to the Mir Hostel that I liked so much when I was here for the first time. Unfortunately, it has changed to the worse, but at least it iis centrally located.


Beautiful sunset hermitage.

Lyubov, whom I met in Cannes in Leonardo Di Caprio's After Party. She reluctantly joined me in the Fidel Bar. Our styles are completely opposite. I prefer the more chaotic places, wheras she likes the more comfortable and noble places. I receive a message from Ulyana, who informs me that she will jjooin us. We hadnt been in touch for a long time, but eventually she arrives with some friends and joins Lyubov and me.


Bukowski pub that smelled a mix of cigarettes, beer and vaginal lubrication. In this bar Lyubov and I both look so out of place that we eventually head to a wine bar, where Lyubov is fully in her element. We continue heading from bar to bar. until I realize that I forgot my phone in bukowski. Once we reach the place we see that a brawl broke out. No surprise, it was just a matter of time.
