Tallinn, Estonia, Day 1

Saying goodbye to the last day of the year from sitting in an office on the 19th, this morning I caught the flight from Oslo to Tallinn.  The flight was supposed to depart at 11am, unfortunately due to an act of God (bad weather) the flight was delayed till 12 and we didn't depart till 12:20pm.  I was supposed to arrive at 1:30pm local time and didn't arrive till 2:45pm.  Annoying.  By the time I arrived it was already dark.  And cold, colder than Oslo even. -18 or something like that.

We caught the 90K bus from the airport and 40 minutes later arrived at our point of interest, Linnahall.  After picking up the apartment keys, we dropped our luggage off then took a short walk to Old Town where we had dinner at the Old Town Garden Hotel.

The outside, during summer.

The inside, during summer, winter, and even on the day of Apocalypse I guess.

We had a late dinner because there was an event or something going on, just on the other side of the restaurant.  On our side, there was nobody.  Except the bulls heads hanging off the walls.  And the occasional wandering waiter.

Rye breadsticks with bits of pig fat on it.  I didn't know it was going to be like this, I expected long bread sticks but always a first time for everything.

Cabbage, pork and potatoes.

Chicken with fried vegetables.

After dinner we took a walk to the nearby Rimi and bought some eggs, vegetables, juice, water, chicken and other tummy fillers so we can cook our own meals the next few days.  That's pretty much day 1.  Or 1 day to the end of the world, whichever you prefer.
