Well, the remainder of our time in Estonia was fairly uneventful. We took a bike tour of the city, which was pretty nice. We were staying in the middle of the old town, which is one of the best preserved medieval walled cities in Europe. So we usually just walked around there. Went out at night. No more rioting. Nick had a little misunderstanding with some local lads, which resulted in him getting kicked in the groin, and the 2 young estonians getting dragged away by the cops. The last night there we went out with a bunch of people from the hostel...Wouldn't you know it, we met a South African guy who will be on the same exact train as us from Moscow to Mongolia, pretty random.

We took the ferry to Helsinki, got here yesterday around 4 PM. Everything weve heard about Helsinki is that its not very fun, so were not planning on doing much, were only here for about 36 hours anyway. We had to stay in a four star hotel, cause there were no Hostels available. This morning, trying to find breakfast, me and Nick wandered into some business conference...Im pretty sure they new we were lost since everyone had business suits on and I was in my board shorts and a T-shirt. Now were sitting in a coffee shop, in a department store, and I only have 5 minutes left on the internet, so cant really write too much.

We leave for St. Petersburg tomorrow morning at 7:30. Not sure what the internet availability is gonna be like there, so it may be awhile before I can write again.

To Russia......
