Blog from St Petersburg

Edmund Nash is off to St Petersburg and will be blogging from there on Postcards from St Petersburg. He is there for a conference on protistology where he will be hoping to enlighten his colleagues on the mitochondria of dinoflagellates and their evolutionary relationships. He may well also be able to entertain us with some photos and news of St Petersburg.

Say a prayer for him as he is flying today with Rossiya - the low-cost subsidiary of Aeroflot.

Thinking of St Petersburg reminds me of a joke from the communist era about a survey:

1. Where were you born?
Answer - St Petersburg

2. Where did you grow up?
Answer - Petrograd

3. Where do you live now?
Answer - Leningrad

3. Where would you most like to live?
Answer - St Petersburg
