Journal Entry:
Didn't sleep much last night. Still not in a great mood, and the non-stop drizzle isn't helping. Also seem to be getting sick. Great.

Checked into the hostel, also made reservations (and paid for) Saturday night in St. Petersburg, now I only have to deal with the Russian Consulate for a visa tomorrow. Also book passage on a hydrofoil to Tallinn, Estonia for tomorrow. Unfortunately I found out after that the consulate is only open from 10:00 to 12:00 so if I'm lucky I'll catch the 12:30 hydrofoil over, and come back at 6:30 giving me 4.5 hours there.

Met my new roomate (there's only two of us in the room), and went out for a beer, probably not a good idea given the mood I was in. We met up with some friends of his girl friend, and went to "Iguana's" and "Happy Days". I was so tired that I gave up about midnight.

Thanks: Kiitos (Key-toes)
Beer: Olut
