I'm thinking about working in St. Petersburg for a while and am curious about the water situation. While I'm aware that the stories of people picking up giardia in the shower are quite inflated, I'm wondering how suspect water affects the daily life of a Chowhound.
Also, how is the fruit/vegetable supply these days? When I lived in Irkutsk I suffered severe produce withdrawal and have since gorged myself at San Francisco farmers' markets. Might I find a somewhat happy medium in St. Petersburg?
