the white nights are coming. in June there are several nights in St. Petersburg where the sun doesn't set called "the white nights". Sam told me that leading up till those nights there is a progression from a certain point in May where the sun sets 3 minutes later each night. I work in the evening 7-10pm and usually arrive home around 11pm. after class I used to walk to the metro in the dark, and now it's like daytime! here are some pictures to show you my perspective on the progression in the last few weeks.
Moreover, when i wake up in the morning at 6am to go to work its also bright like midday. such stark contrast to the winter with its 18 hours of darkness and only 6 hours of light!
