Glad you all enjoyed the pictures, they a blast to take and even better to see in person. If you ever get the chance I say do it, but also keep in mind it rains a lot in St Petes too :P

I love photography and your pics were not only pretty cool to get a glimpse of Saint Petersburg, but also were pretty well taken which makes them even cooler!

Makes me excited considering I will be there soon! I am definitely going to try to add some places to go based on your photos. I'm so excited. Thanks for sharing!

Always double check your documents and forms. Not only do you get delayed by RFEs and Checklists, but the time it takes for them to review the new items you send could be used to approve more applications. Save yourself and others valuable time!
