It was so quiet last night. While my hostel in Tallinn was in a quiet section of Old Town, you could still hear the low buzz of the city outside. But in Kuressaare it was silent after I had turned the light out. I slept a solid 7 and a half hours, only waking up because the blinds in the room let in so much light.
