I drove to Estonia from Russia yesterday. The total driving time from St. Petersburg to Johvi, Estonia is about 4 hours, but the border crossing can take anywhere from an hour to 5 hours. Yesterday I made it across the border in 50 minutes. That was nice.
I’m working on Sunbeam, a day center for children with disabilities we are opening here in Estonia. You can read the latest news here. I’m helping set up some administrative items, and I’ve been building a simple website for Sunbeam.
I made a couple of videos of my drive in Russia. I’ll call them Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. First, the nice Dr. Jekyll:
And the rough Mr. Hyde. (It’s no wonder I need to get my car fixed pretty often.)
Just AFTER I made that last video, I saw a sign that said Rough Road Ahead. (!)
I’d like to point out that this is THE main federal highway from St. Petersburg into Europe.
