We arrived in St. Petersburg on the second day of the FIFA 2018. The day before Reza had come to Moscow from Istanbul and because he had a ticket to the football match in St Petersburg, he took a free train from the capital provided by RZD (Russian railways) during the FIFA Cup. The night train was super cool, with two floors and second class compartments. You seldom see such trains on the Trans-Siberian route let alone for free! Needless to say that all the passengers were football fans with tickets to the match in St. Petersburg so the atmosphere was great and they were drinking all night long. It was Reza’s first time in Russia and his first time seeing the white nights.
