Photographer's Note

Othodox church - my photo to represent Tallinn... my personal experience from my journal several years ago...

While on the over night bus from Poland to Estonia, I chatted through the night with the two older Finish women in front of me. They have been friends since they were little girls and last year started doing yearly travels together.

One of them was a teacher who lives in Helsinki, the other is an artist who lives on her own island near the mainland. Actually, she’s an interesting one. She doesn’t sleep in her house since she is preparing to spend six Winter months in Siberia! She’s also one of those people who go swimming in the ocean during the coldest months, so I think she’ll be fine.

By the end of the ride, they had given me their addresses and the door codes to their places should I visit Finland! They had been greeted with some amazing hospitality on their travels and were in the spirit to return it. Lucky me!

They fed me on the trip and gave me a taxi ride to my hostel when we got to Tallinn.

(for more of this story, see the Sauntering 2000- travelogue site for details. for a future encounter with the friendly finish women, you can find more in my Helsinki, Finland picture note)
