Russia - Moscow to St. Petersburg

The fountain complex at Peterhoff is one of the largest ever built.
Peter was a bit of a practical joker.  He had a set of sprinklers installed on a path and took great delight in waiting until the courtiers were out for a stroll in their finest clothes and turning it on to drench them... not a bad idea.  They turn it on once a day to show how it works, and Timothy just had to try it.
Everybody loved my bike except Vladimir.  He did manage to ride it, but wasn't wild about it.
Marina was the most enthusiastic new rider.  I stayed with her family for a week, and she rode the bike nearly every day.
