    ... Dean Martin singing "Ain't that a Kick in the Head" followed some old blues number that I didn't recognise but sounded like Minnie the Moocher so I decided to have my next course here. It's still warm and light so I sat in the courtyard. Ordered an Aperol Spritz and a shot of the Estonian national liquor - Vana Tallinn - both of which were the waiter's recommendations. He also talked me through the menu finally setting me on the grilled pork chop with mustard ...

    Well, we're back in Texas, and I still have six days of blog to write! Those last days were so jam-packed that there wasn't a spare moment for Don to process pictures or for me to write the blog. So don't worry, we haven't disappeared from the face of the earth, and we're home safe and sound (after an unanticipated six-hour delay at Washington Dulles airport, bringing us to our front door at 3 AM!). Bills have been paid, the laundry is ...

    A destination to return to!! Probably a bit 'touristy' but really charming. Delightful architecture in the old medieval town, lots of local artisans at work in their studios, cafes, perfect weather and tasty food.

Points of significance ,however, are easy to find. We ...

    ... boasts a population of about 400,000 but caters for 9 million visitors annually. 9 million!! Today we caught the hop on hop off bus which took us to the outlying points around this city. The TV tower that is 318 m tall, the botanic gardens, the seaplane museum, the yacht club, a couple of memorials for significant souls and back to town. Then a walk into St Nicholas's church (Niguliste) where we marvelled at the artwork of the 1400s & 1500s. These truly ...
