Getting into Russia

So after two days touring Tallinn and meeting other amazing international travellers, we got on the bus for St Petersburg, Russia. We travelled for the whole night, which curiously seemed to be playing in fast forward as there were so few hours of darkness. By 4am we got to the border and it was quite bright already. Security did not care about our luggage, but was very tight on passports. They checked mine for longer than it had ever happened to me before, and had to refer to their “futuristic” database to identify Suzie's ID as they seemed to have never ever an Australian passport at all. The amount of police and militia, and the number of different uniforms and occasional parades of cadets in St Petersburg was is sharp contrast with Tallinn. I hope they don't find out my secret evil plan to conquer the world...
Dunque dopo aver passato due giornate a Tallin e dopo aver incontrato altri viaggiatori incredibili, siam saliti sul bus per san Pietroburgo.
Abbiam viaggiato l'intera notte ma e' sembrato strano dato che le ore di oscurita' erano davvero poche. Alle 4 siam arrivati al confine e sembrava gia' giorno. Alla dogana nessuno ha guardato i bagali ma son stati molto stretti sui passaporti. Hanno guardato il mio molto a lungo, e per quello di Suzie hanno dovuto ricorrere al loro "futuristico" database sovietico.
La quantita' di polizia e di militari, ed il numero di uniformi diverse e di parate militari di cadetti a San Pietroburgo hanno creato un contrasto sorprendente con Tallin. Spero non scoprano il mio piano malvagio per conquistare il mondo...
