The 81-year-old man reached his destination in central St. Pete on July 4 and presented the flag of Lower Saxony to the city administration;s representatives. Langner admitted that people in Russia were friendly and helpful, despite the language barrier. "I can't put into words the feelings that I am experiencing right now," he added.
