I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip to my home town, Alberto! I'm moving back to Estonia at the end of this year myself - after self-imposed 7-year exile in Edinburgh - and I'm really looking forward to it:)

Alberto

Well, you deserve a big thank you for the great tips. I'm sure your blog will become, if possible, even more fascinating once you're back in Estonia!

:) Just wondering, what is this "peculiar look people give tourists"?
Also, the cute little red house is just after Saiakangi Kehrwieder - Tristan & Isolde is under the Town Hall/Raekoda across the square; same proprietors thou.
I sang in the same choir with a girl who lived in that house - I remember being so dead jealous of her:)

Alberto

Thanks for the details and correction.

I knew the question was coming :D. I don't know if I can describe it properly, and I have to say I didn't observe "the look" :-) as much in the city centre as outside it. I would say it is a mix of some curiosity for foreigners and quite a lot of pride, sort of saying: we're happy you're visiting but don't you dare be one of those bloody annoying tourist who expects everything to be like at home. I actually liked it ;-).
