Day 41 Tallinn



Day 40 Tallinn, originally uploaded by Big Al!.

Short ride from hotel to ferry terminal. Long wait to board the ferry, bored on the ferry. Then Tallinn. At first glance nicer even than Copenhagen, until rounding the corner to discover the mass of tourists. Germans, Russians, English stag parties. Give in, go along with it, tourist restaurant, staff in "authentic" traditional garb, silly hats, horns, people watching people watching people watching people. English laughing at Russian fashion sense, Russians laughing at their own corrupt oligarchic wealth, Estonians laughing at stag party binge drinking, Germans having serious conversations about the economy and the environment.
