visual diary – esoteric TallinnPosted: July 28, 2009
Our apartment in Tallinn was opposite of one of the many beautiful orthodox churches. Sitting on the deep window sills was one of my favourite moments of the morning. It was lovely to start the day with a quiet, private moment with our new best friend Nikolai.
I was often accompanied by a cup of fresh coffee, the daily paper and my holiday book (the very funny The Worst Date Ever by Jane Bussmann). The summer clouds and people passed by like in a film.
Our last night we actually went to visit the church. It was open to tourists and undergoing some major renovations, but the details visible were still very beautiful. There was a quiet, otherworldly atmosphere inside filled with the lovely scent of the beeswax candles lingering.
We couldn't have asked for better (and quieter) neighbours really.
