Tallinn, Estonia, Day 12 - Old Town, Freedom Square, Happy New Year!

9:45am Breakfast as usual.  Today we were going to go around Old Town and shop for things to bring back home.  And that was what we did.

St Nicholas Church.

Vendor selling roasted pecans.

Nom nom, they were good!

We looked around Old Town, mainly for the intent of buying stuff to take back home.

Interior of Hää Eesti Asi located within Old Town.  Didn't buy anything from this one as it was a lot more expensive than the one we went to previously.

Lots of chocolate. Interior of Hää Eesti Asi..

Sausage samples.

Old Hansa, selling caramalised almonds.

We went to the cheaper Hää Eesti Asi where we bought a few things previously, it's located just outside around the corner.  I bought a table cloth, oven glove, some meat seasonings and hemp chocolate.  Then we walked back to where the Christmas markets were to have lunch.

After lunch we dropped off our shopping in the hotel.

6pm or so, food shopping at Solaris.  We took another walk back to Solaris where we bought food to celebrate the dawning of 2013.

I bought 10 packs of these noodles to take back with me.  They were good!

Dinner was salmon, dried meat, mushrooms, chicken salad, rice salad, bread, cheese, mojito drink, and apple cider.

New Year dinner in the room!

11:30pm Walked to Freedom Square where we were treated to 10 minutes of fireworks shot from almost every corner.  I shot the entire video, but later took some photos as well.  There were lots of people, and a lot of Russians.

Freedom Square!  It was drizzling lightly.

Counting down!

Happy New Year!
