from our apartment, we walked back around 2km to the train station at 6am in the morning,
and took back our luggages that we dumped in the train's locker room.
and then walked to the bus station which was located just beside the train station.
and we arrived in st petersburg bus station at around 11am.
since we have like 88milion of things to carry ahahaaha, we just took uber from the bus station to our hotel (which was only 1.2km distance)
the location of our hotel (Guest House Dvor) is quite kelam kelam suram, but, the inside was really nice. and clean. and comfy.
we were being greeted by a handsome staff/boss, abam.(takot nak tulis nama dia)
but he cant speak english, and we cant speak in russian language, so everytime MMTK needs/asking something, we made really use of the google translator.
(kekdg tu sampai berejam2 nak terangkan satu bende tuh)
(nak tanye how to operet the washing machine pon amek mase sejam ahahahhahahaha)
but, he was the nicest russian we encounter.
after settling down in the room, he asked us where we wanna go and volunteered to show us around.
ouwwwwwwwww co cwittttttttttttt
ahahahahhaha mula dahhh mula dahhhhh
walopon dia begitu laju berjalan and didnt leave us photocamping at each of the places of interest we went to, tp sbb dia kacak sempurna am am, maka kami seperti dicucuk hidung, ikot sejjahhhh kemana sahaja kau membawa kami pergi abam kuuuu...
dan sedar tak sedar, we walked like 10-12km, in less than 2hours time. gileeeeeeee sakittttttttt kaki aku!
ade satu part tu rase mcm nak tumbang dah ni, tp tepakse kontrol maco depan abam kacak gagah berahi. amm.
(walopon tepakse la berebut 4 wanita ni, abam nye seketul je)
(mcmla dapat kan. sentuh pon idok. sentuh berlapik kan baju je pon)
(hashtag takde telor)
we just stopped for awhile at subway for lunch and sambung jalan
and chatting (via google translator again)(mostly abam borak dgn mmtk je pon) and lepak2 at a coffee chop before we went back to the hotel.
it was a warm evening after all, walopon didlm keadaan yg supersejuk.
