... to go back to the hotel to rest. It was interesting seeing the Art Nouveau and wooden buildings that are in the newer parts of town (from 1600 on!!!), but the traffic was horrendous! Choosing where to go to get food is always a hassle as there is too many choices. It didn't help that Sarina wasn't hungry, so we went and shared a pizza! We caught another tour bus as by now it was raining and ...

... br> We did spot some new steps off to the side which we figured went to the 'Real’ caves so started to climb. You get so far that you figure that the investment in time and effort will not go unrewarded so you keep going. 400 steps later we reach the top but there was nothing of interest, just a path leading somewhere else. So 400 steps back down and look for the camp site, set up and find a cheap place to eat at. We could afford to eat out ...

Riding out of Town

I have one day left plus a few hours. During that time, I've got to get from Riga, Latvia back to Moscow, find someplace to stash my luggage, take one last tour, pick-up said luggage, get to the airport, and get back to London. Never let it be said that I don’t over-pack my life (that would be both activities and luggageJ) With the internet, it is so darn easy these days to arrange everything before ...

... five languages fluently. Yeah - just like me. ;) Tour of the "Old Town" that had buildings as old as from the 1200s.....just something we don't have in the United States. I'll post pics later - but - if you EVER have the chance to stop through Tallinn- do it. It's like a fairy tale....old buildings that survived the teset of time/wars.
