Nothing especially exciting to report today, except that we arrived in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, whisked across the Gulf of Finland from Helsinki in two hours on a sleek hydrofoil.
We’ve spent a bit of time wandering around Tallinn’s gorgeous Old Town and had a leisurely lunch at one of the pretty outdoor cafes that line the streets everywhere. Most important, we scoped out a bike rental shop. If we wake up to nice weather tomorrow, we’ll go back to get bikes and spend the day pedaling along the coast outside the city.
For those of you who missed my earlier post on Instagram and Facebook, here is the giant evil baby statue from central Helsinki. I have no idea what he is about. And my attempts to google things like “winged baby sculpture helsinki” have yielded nothing. Very suspicious.
