I’m staying in a small bed and breakfast in St Petersburg. It’s lovely and the staff are incredibly patient with my thwarted attempts at Russian. Each room is decorated like a different major city or part of the world. I’m staying in the Savanna room, which, as you can see by the picture, is decorated like an African savanna. What is so confusing is that I stayed in a room decorated very similarly to this in Kruger, South Africa. Every morning when I wake up I have to remind myself I’m in Russia, not South Africa. Even though I am in the savanna.
