    Yes, two blogs in one day from Rick. This is because we are in the wonderful 'Looming' Hostel in Tartu, Estonia, which not only is very 'eco', but also has a computer on which I have been able to download, sort and backup photos.
    So here is a selection of the many bits of graffiti and street art we've seen on our travels so far.
    If you've really been paying attention you might spot ones you've seen ...

    ... out to explore.

    Tartu is one of the earliest settlements in Estonia, originally called Tarbatu and dating back to at least 600AD. It first came into written records when Grand Prince of Kiev, Yaroslav the Wise, conquered the town and renamed it Yuriyev.

It was for this reason that this place has had a long and ...

At the university accommodation the lady ...

    ... went to a Mafia style cafe for lunch, it was delicious and relatively cheap. I had salmon soup and veggies. Soup is a must here, it definitely warms the body when it's this cold out. Afterwards I went to a cafe I have been in a lot since being here to get a dessert. It was awesome! I got a piece of chocolate and vanilla cake. It was suggested by the barista. After the class I am headed to a dinner for international students, I hope there is Estonian food there, it's soooo ...

    So for the past few days we arrived in Tartu and I have been getting acclimated to the city. It's a cute city, small, much like Morgantown. The weather has been surprisingly nice, with some rain but overall good weather.

    I moved into the dorm, Raatuse 22. The apartments have three rooms with two people in each room. We share the kitchen and bathroom. Four of the five suite mates have moved ...
