In the first week in St.Petersburg I learnt a few things, mostly the hard way!
• Don't assume that the toilet can handle normal toilet functions.
• Just because it looks like the free bus you got on earlier doesn't mean it's free. The
driver will most likely say nothing at the time, then stop a little down the road to
shout at you for not paying.
• It's perfectly possible to spread cream cheese with the end of your toothbrush but
given that it costs only a pound to get to Ikea and back, unless, of course, you
make the above mistake, it's probably best just to get some cutlery.
• When the fountain says it does boiling water, don't test it with your hand.
