The Russian border..

(Ha Ha that was a good one! I should tell them that!)

So i made it Saint Petersburg.. And in the process i had to cross the Estonian/Russian border..
So we're stopped at the Estonian side, and they collect the passports and stuff.. and they even have a dog come in the bus to sniff everyone! So i'm thinking "ok that's some serious border we have here"..

Then we cross to the Russian side and there, no collecting of passports; everyone has to actually get down the bus, with all luggage to go through the control point..
Ok, so we go.. it's 3:30 in the night but we go..
Fill the form, go through control, go to the guy who tells you how to properly fill the form, go through control again!...
Good, passed!
But then after the passport check, i see everyone line up in front of some closed office and enter one by one.. I'm thinking "they're really not joking here, individual luggage control in a private room!!"...

...

until i realised everyone was actually just waiting to go to the bathroom before going back to the bus!!

well, we all get confused don't we?!
