Jon and Linda are providing water for us for the duration of our trip. Taffy has a sophisticated water system which is filtered. Russian tap water is of inconsistent quality so they fill up and we take it, filtered and safe to drink to put in our tank.
We're going to set off ahead of Jon and Linda tomorrow as they still have more to see in St. Petersburg. Mum has just found out that she is to have a knee replacement on 13th September. That's such short notice and I would like go and see her after the operation. We need to get back into europe so I can get a cheap flight back.
