I participated in the Russian-German Geometry Meeting on the occasion of the 85th birthday of A.D. Alexandrow. I was very pleased with the perfect organization of the meeting and I enjoyed the warm hospitality of our russian colleagues very much. The scientific program of the conference was exellent. Besides all of this I found the beautiful city of St. Petersburg with all its cultural treasures rather exiting. Too bad that I did not have the time to stay a few days longer.
