  1. Really like the pic of the doors, can't be much isolation.

  2. Thank you for great photos! I lived the first six years of my life in Estonia, but remember very little of it since I was too young. But your pictures are filling in those gaps in memory;-)))

  3. Great cold does it get there?

    2. wel lthis winter minimum was - 30C...
      but usually it's close to zero and lots of mud mixed with snow..

  4. This are really great pictures. Hopefully one day I will be able to visit Estonia.

  5. Could hardly recognise Keila waterfall. By the way where exactly is the new bookshop?

    1. book shop is in old town:
      it's this narrow street that starts next to mcdonalds and leads to Drink Bar, u pass by a stip club and then you'll probably see a chair and a table with books outside - that's the shop. and they have decent prices as well.
