Friday afternoon our local guide took us on a tour of the city.
We stopped at the song festival grounds and on the shore of the Baltic Sea.

We walked down into Lower Old Town and passed the Town Hall Square.
I didn't get too many pictures because our awful local guide rushed us through everything.

MY DAILY EMAIL SENT ON SEPTEMBER 6, 2013
Hello folks,

Sorry I didn't write last night. I spent the evening praying to the porcelain goddess after being poisoned at yesterday's lunch.

This morning it was a four and a half hour drive to Tallinn, Estonia. We checked into our hotel and then had a sightseeing tour of the city. The tour was absolutely identical to the tour I took from the cruise ship back in 2011. Below is a picture of the Baltic Sea. If you look close into the sun you can see the Tallinn skyline.



Next we toured the old walled town. Below is the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.



Below is a view of lower old town from upper old town.



Tomorrow we are taking a ferry across the Baltic Sea back to Helsinki where this tour will end. I'm flying to Warsaw, Poland on Sunday for two days before returning home.

I'm actually starting to get a little hungry. I think I will go down to dinner now.
