|387--Estonia (Eesti): Tallinn the Truth|

Cherie with a nut-seller in the charming city of Tallinn, Estonia. (Estonia is only a 90-minute ferry ride from Helsinki, Finland.)
After a short 90-minute ferry ride across the Gulf of Finland, Brenda and I arrived in Estonia’s capital city. As we strolled through the cobbled streets and admired the stunning architecture, it felt like we turned back the clock a few hundred years (and turned back prices a few decades!) Many people take the ferry to Estonia just to stock up on supplies and cheap alcohol.
The signs may warn of purse-snatchers, but Brenda and I felt perfectly safe wandering around the slow curves of the city. In the town square, we ran into a group of car racers competing in the centennial 2007 Peking to Paris car race. These classic cars blended with a classic city that every traveler should put on their list of places not to miss!
