Gracious, elegant hotel in a gorgeous old building in an even more gorgeous street in an outstandingly beautiful part of the world. Comfortable room with excellent bed, lovely and quiet. Wonderful food - we have tried both dinner and breakfast and they were quite different: dinner elegant and refined, breakfast enormous, hearty, and will set up up for a week. The biggest selection of delicious Baltic cold meats, smoked fish and pickles I've ever seen, and that's BEFORE they brought the hot breakfast! And finally, outstandingly helpful and friendly staff. The service in the outside terrace at dinner last night was some of the best I've ever experienced - so unobtrusive and yet he was right there the second one needed anything. Outstanding in every respect.

We walked from the harbor to the old town ...
... to the hotel the sun suddenly came up, the wind and rain subsided; it was a nice evening but strange to see the sun only at 7pm. The climate was milder in the evening than it had been all day. The temperature in my room had risen to 25! I'm hoping it will be a pleasant day tomorrow.
Nagemist (NAH-geh-mist) goodbye
This morning we awoke a little more tired as there appeared to be a shouting match going on not far from our window. The general men's shouting lasted for about half an hour and was punctuated by the quite honestly impressive, Sharapova-esq wailing of two drunk girls! One in particular had quite the screech and she had to be shouted off of the street by a sober sounding proprietor! We walked the familiar streets of Tallinn's old town to SS Peter and ...
... outside that had information placards in front of them, indicating it was some kind of free open-air museum. There was also a sign saying "Please do not climb in or on the vehicles, thank-you." No need to thank me - first thing I did was climb in and on the vehicles.
There is another storage yard of old army gear around the back, plus some small war ships of some sort. One of my best mates is a Navy man, so he would have loved this.
From my conversations with David ...

Our next leg was to have been Helsinki which Michael continued on to and met up with a friend from Melbourne as we had to stay in Tallinn. We had ...
