Today I arrived in Tallin, Estonia after crossing the Baltic in the overnight ship. Tallinn’s best feature is its medieval Old Town and I wandered around there today. I saw the hotel called The Three Sisters and, of course, had to take a photo for Maggie and Carol and Diane. I visited the museum of Estonian History and learned a bit more about this corner of the world. In the Middle Ages it was dominated by the German traders of the Hanseatic League. After WWII it was occupied by the USSR, but then staged a successful - and bloodless - revolution to gain its independence when the Soviet Union fell. Today it is a part of NATO and the European Union and is a modern, foward-thinking country, even if most of us Americans couldn’t find it on a map. One of the things that I particularly like is the no-nonsense name of one of their coffee chains - Caffeine!
