The Russian border

We crossed the border into Russia close to Lappeenranta in Finland.
We were supposed to cross the border a little bit further South, but when we arrived there the border was closed.....because a Finn had tried to travel into Russia without a visa!

A Russian lake

The landscape between the Finnish border and St.Petersburg is green with a lot of lovely lakes.
