Having cleaned the car out at the camp ground, we took it back to the airport, and then waited for a bus into town. Back to public transport and waiting! Eventually a bus turned up, and we decided to check out the "Scotland Yard" pub, which had been closed on our previous stay in Tallinn. Had a look around but decided to eat elsewhere after all.
