Team 2, Team 4X, Fully Tours St. Petersburg, Prepares For Morning Flight To The Mountains

Hello there friends, family, and loved ones, this is Team 4X, calling in from St. Petersburg, Russia.  All the team has toured the fine, wonderful historic sites of the big city of St. Petersburg. We’ve been to museums, we’ve been to prisons, we’ve been to cathedrals, we’ve been to forts, and people have pretty well… (transmission unclear) almost every aspect of the tourist facet of this city. We just had a great meal and we are heading to bed because we’ve got to get up early tomorrow. And as you see we have come up with a team name “4X”, it has to do with a dance bar that is very nearby. And we are actually going to head down to the mountains tomorrow, so hang with us and see where we’re going tomorrow, stay tuned!  Ciao ciao for now.
