26 May 2003 - Somewhere between St Petersburg and Helsinki
We're Russian to the Finnish line

Hey, it took me minutes to think up of that title, okay? So, cut me some slack.

The Russian phase of our journey will be over once we cross the border into Finland. It has been a... tiring experience. Don't get me wrong - I like Moscow, and St Petersburg was pretty pretty. Mainly, it's because my credit card was stolen, and a lot of time and effort and worrying was spent trying to find out how to call the Visa helpline to get it back.

Also, there's the additional stress (I'm not sure if that's the right word) of not speaking the language, which severely limits what you're able to do.
