October, 6

The day started pretty good.

I had porridge with nuts, raisins (изюм) and prunes (чернослив). It was unusual because I'm lazy to do it regularly.)) Also, I made several canapé consisting of bread, cornichons, stewed beet and some mayonnaise. It was unusual, as well, for we don't recieve guests very often and to do such delicious things for ourselves is nonsense. All in all, I liked my breakfast very much.

The sun was shining so bright and beautiful that I couldn't resist it. I took a quick shower and got dressed.

I decided to start at Gostiny Dvor, so I went by tube to Nevsky Prospect metro station.

Gostiny Dvor is a place with a lot of things (bijouterie, books, china, souvenirs, clothes and so on) but prices are quite high so we don't buy things there, it's a place for tourists mostly.

I saw very beautiful earings and bracelets - so colorful and interesting. Maybe one day I will take them but not now.

Then I came along Square of Arts (there is a small, quiet park) to Church of the Savior on Blood. There is a park, as well, and I went through it enjoying wonderful trees with their many-coloured leaves and the sun on my hair.
