3 July - Ready to travel


4 July - Visiting Tanja, Nikolai and Daria in Tallinn


5 July - Lotte play room in Tallinna Kaubamaja (shopping centre). Lotte is the movie character all Estonian kids are crazy about.

This fish tank apparently had issi fish and emme fish and Oh fish and Anna fish and Mummu fish...


In the zoo with my sister Jana


The best part of the zoo was the transport... (he was supposed to sit in it)


6 July - Dropping Anna and Mummu (Johanna and Magda) off at their grandma's place near Tallinn.


7 July - Haapsalu


8 July - Checking out some "art" at the castle.


The pram and the rocket were made out of old mines.                                           Just Haapsalu.


Another rocket. Dedicated to an Estonian band of the 80s.


Glass makers from various European countries had gathered in Haapsalu for a week to display the
process of their art. These two are German, I think.

11 July - A rainy day...

Perfect for exploring puddles...

Mom doesn't have a functioning bathtub, so Oskar has to take a shower each night. Not that he minds.
