Been there done that. I am back in ST Pete,Russia! With 400 rooms, 14 miles of hallways and nearly 3 million pieces of art, I always come back here to The Hermitage!

"You're not going to see people like this again for a long time, he said and I said I always saw people like this & he looked at me for a moment and said, You're not from around here, are you?"

“People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.”Dagobert D. Runes

"You do an eclectic celebration of the dance! You do Fosse, Fosse, Fosse! You do Martha Graham, Martha Graham, Martha Graham! Or Twyla, Twyla, Twyla! Or Michael Kidd, Michael Kidd, Michael Kidd, Michael Kidd! Or Madonna, Madonna, Madonna!... but you keep it all inside."

So I'm back in Mother F"n Russia. Part Victoria Secret Cat Walk, part Janitor-in-a-Drum-gold-plated Septic tank....


And Then There is The Hermitage: Saw Leonardo di Caprio's Madonna and Child Michelangelo's Crouching Boy Statue, and Rembrandt's Prodigal Son.

What's hot verses what's not:
Waiting in line for six hours for the latest iteration of i phone at the Apple Store (Hot) verses

waiting on line from 8AM to 10:30 to step foot in The Hermitage.(Not) + the multiplier effect getting to role play in an old soviet peasant breadline scene--Still, damn well grateful for the opportunity.
Very authentic.

Make Your Teeth Whiter With Rembrandt

Forget those Crest Whitener strips or baking soda, the quickest way to whiten your teeth is looking at a Rembrandt. Makes you smile. "You could take a Rembrandt anywhere in the world, to the deserts, jungles, or islands, and everybody would immediately understand it and respond."


Back in St Petersburg, Russia again for three days. With 400 rooms, 14 miles of hallways and nearly 3 million pieces of art, I always come back here to Rembrandt.The hermitage is closed on Monday (Tomorrow)On Tuesday I'll take video of The Prodigal Son . I just had a big dinner-so I'm a bit tired, but just shot this video of GR8 view...Roll to video...
