It's so cold here
29.04.2007 - 01.05.2007 10 °C
i know it's eastern europe but it's supposed to be about 10 degrees. No way is it 10 degrees. The wind just cuts right through you - it's unreal and it's almost may.
When we were queuing up for our passports to be checked, hey were playng pet shop boys 'go west'. They trying to tell us something?
Tallinn old town is fucking cool though. Really easy to get to. Just grab the bus from the airport (get a ticket from the r-kiosk inside the airport 10EEK). Get off at the Vira(?) bus station and it's just around the corner.
We stayed in Old House Hostel - pretty decent. Great location in centre of old town. Went to Krahl's bar - they were playing the Cure as we went in, you gotta love that. Saku is the local beer here - it's well decent. Hells Hunt bar is by far the best though.
Also, headed out to Kadriorg Park. It's just a park really. Get a bit suckered in by the lonely planet saying you'll fall in love with the statues. Who falls in love with statues?
Got the bus out on Tuesday. 5 1/2 hours. The most unnecessary 5 1/2 hours of my life. It stopped at least twice for 10 mins at a time and had about 6 pickups including 3 in tallinn. Estonia is so flat which made the journey 10 times longer but you get a really big sky.
