Psycho-Neurotic-Boarding House No 3

WHO WE ARE: we are living in a home in Peterhof, which is about thirty kilometres from St. Petersburg. At the Gulf of Finland. In Russia. Nearby the summer residence of Peter the Great and his Tsar successors with this famous park and the magnificent fountains. A Russian Versailles, they say. We have never seen all that. Our home is officially called „Psycho-Neurotic-Boarding House No. 3“. Others simply speak of Peterhof, again others of refuse chute or dustbin – society’s dustbin!
