I walked down from the port for about 500 KM and ran into the old town Tallinn and entered at Fat Margaret's Tower. I don’t know why they call it this. It is simply an entrance to the old town. I immediately fell in love with this city. It’s designed around the 1800s. I felt like I was walking the same streets as the knights did way back when. It was amazing! Half of the old town is surrounded by brick walls that once guarded the city. The walls are roughly 30 feet high. There is a way to walk on the top of the walls, but I couldn’t find how to get up there. All the streets within the old town are either brick or rock. The doors or all the restaurants and shops in the town have kept their taste as they are still old
I did also get a chance to walk around new town. I walked all the way up and down the main street going to the Chinese embassy. I was hoping to get a visa for the rest of my trip, but was unsuccessful. They told me I have to get the visa in USA. I'm not sure what I will do now. New town is basically filled with more shopping centers and commercial districts where people work. It's not so exciting. I jsut saw a movie and went to a shopping center there and got some food.
