Back again. Thanks so much for the kind comments and private emails. So very much appreciated.
Let’s go back to Tallinn’s Town Hall Square….
These guys photobombed me at least three times, but I didn’t mind. 🙂
The people at the market were so nice! They very happily posed for photos:
This sweet girl continued to smile for me while playing the little flute.
There was all kinds of stuff for sale at this market.
If I didn’t live in California and had room in my luggage, I would have bought a sweater and some mittens.
See the pale blue building named Tudengimaja? I got a small clay replica at a gift shop nearby. The saleswoman translated it as “student house.” I thought that meant “hostel,” but it’s more like “student union.”
Just a great place to be on a sunny summer day.
According to a Tallinn website, the tradition of celebrating Christmas festivities here dates back to 1441, when the Brotherhood of the Blackheads are thought to have erected the world’s very first Christmas tree.
Just a little more Tallinn on Friday, then on to St. Petersburg. 🙂
