p. 171 ex. 1. Dear Alex,
This is a picture of St. Petersburg. The weather is bad here. They say it often rains in this city. But in spite of the weather we are having a great time here. We have already visited several places of interesting. The city is on the big river — the Neva. There are a lot of bridges across the Neva. They are raised at night. It’s fantastic! There are lots of parks, squares, monuments, historical buildings here such as Isakiy and Khasansky Cathedrals, the Admiralty, the Winter Palace, the Summer Garden. You’d like it here very much. See you soon.
Best wishes. Yana.
