After a nice early night, we woke early and started running around Old Town in Tallinn. Of course, we forgot it was Good Friday so most things we wanted to see were closed so we spent most of the day walking around. The good part about traveling during low season is that there aren't as many people; the bad part is some things are never open, no matter what holiday. Either way we saw most of the old sites from the outside. We even ventured out of Old Town to an old market where everything there looked like it was made in 1980. After all that walking and some fika breaks we ate dinner at a medieval restaurant. It was very nice this past week, going out to eat and actually get good food for really cheap(unlike Sweden). Our night ended with a visit to the Depeche Mode bar where all they play is Depeche Mode music all the time. Our second day in Tallinn was full of more walking around the city and revisiting the museums we wanted to get into.  Tallinn is a beautiful old town though.  I'm not much of a museum person, so I was perfectly content to walk around and look at everything there was to see.  We did go on one tour; it was to go into the tunnels under the walls.  The tunnels have been totally redone so it wasn't very cool at all.  You'd see an old gate here and there, but nothing too exciting, plus it was in estonian and I didn't understand a word!  After our two days, the next stop was Riga!
