First snow in Tallinn


Finally it came! I was waiting for it, I already could felt it, but now I can see and touch it. Winter in definitively in Estonia. Within just a night the landscape has totaly changed, sky turned blue and ground turned white.

First step in the snow

My day start quite late, but my roomate motivated me enough to go with him. No lunch, only a shower.

First meters outside and I recovered previous sensation of what a slippery ground is: dangerous and funny. I enjoyed walking and sledging to the trolley station, my mate not that much. I can only advice him better shoes.

Even before having left the trolleybus I was thinking of a funny fact. When tourists are visiting Tallinn they are all doing the same tour. They go to Toompea from the Town Hall square, look at the city from the two main seeing points in the same order and leave by another route to come back to the main square.

Guess what we have done? Mostly the same, except we have start from the Lutheran church and have aken the stairs (dangerous by the way…).

Back to the old town

A very short tour in the old town consisting by reaching the main square from Toompea after having been in Viru street. Very short. But I have met again the church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul and theLithuanian Embassy. Few people in the street, even for a saturday.

No harbour but a pub

I wanted to continue but not my mate, the condition weren’t good enough (eg: little snowy) then we join the Irish pub on the main square. We had beers and garlic bread. When we finished the light was really low and I decided to go home with him, I didn’t wanted to have nigth pictures.
