Estonia Pictures…

I decided to post some pictures today of Estonia. I will be nice to Estonia and show the good…

Beautiful countryside and actually Tallinn in a beautiful city. It is so tiny and after looking up the population of Estonia, I was shocked. Population is dropping like a rock (Most European countries are!) and right now there is about 1.3 million people in the whole country. Not Tallinn, but the whole country… (I would live there for that fact alone; No people…)

That part was very nice and I really enjoyed the release of external pressure to the senses, there just is not anyone around…

Crossing the border made me proud. They were fast, easy and left you alone. Shoes on, no bomb sniffing, metal detector, no crotch grabbing and it was basically unobtrusively pleasant. Tiny little airport, but well run and I would say the only thing that irritated, was the fact that it was a proverbial advertisement disaster from the entrance to the exit. I mean simply put; There is ads in your face ever step of the way and they make you walk through ever store to get to your gate. Sveta loves that, but I am grouchy bear and do not like that stuff…

Estonian food was good, except they seem to be lacking their own branding of food and imitate the rest of the world. Sveta will tell you as I will also, we found the best Georgian restaurant in Tallinn and it made our day…

Loved the country and loved the city of Tallinn, but…

I will leave it at that and not show you the very seedy side of life there. I will say that they need to de-westernize and get back to their roots, but we all know that will not happen and therefore happiness is going to elude all but the 1% and it is clear that the 1% is actually about .25 of a single 1% and they keep the peasants under the thumb…

All in all; We will go back, because of the simplicity of the existence there. Easy in and easy out, with lots of self-control as a first impression…
