Dear Shaded Viewers,

Day 2 started off with a visit to the Hermitage Museum, turns out that February 15th is Spontaneous Love Day, I guess that is Russia's answer to Valentine's day but I think it is about love and kindness, if I have that right.

Of course you would probably need a few weeks to go through the entire collection at the Hermitage, but from the little that I did see, I fell in love with the music room.
