We spent the next six or so hours exploring St. Petersburg, one of the local guys acting as our guide and translating everything into English for me. I even joined them in a cafe for their ISIC meeting, which consisted of around 30 students total. I was treated to cranberry juice (Russians seem to love juices) and a Russian dish that I call Russian pie. Essentially you cook a pie crust and stuff it with any fillings you can imagine. The two slices I had were potato and meat and for desert a cranberry and apple slice.
