View of Old Town

View of Old Town

We arrived in Tallinn via Warsaw early this afternoon as part of a 10 day trip through the Baltic States and Helsinki.

Tallinn is a pleasant city with a beautiful Old Town and very odd weather, which seems to change by the minute -- sunny, then cloudy, then rainy, then sunny. I was outside after 11 p.m. and it was still light -- I've never seen anything like it. And the sun rises at 4 a.m.!
