We packed our bags and in the afternoon left for Heltermaa, where we wanted to take a ferry back to mainland Estonia.
Kelli drove us to the bus station and in Kärdla we got a quick ride with somebody who also wanted to take the ferry, a young film student called Mihkel. We talked to him about movies, it turned out he had once played in an Estonian movie called Revolution of Pigs (Sigade revolutsioon). More information on : www.imdb.com/title/tt0410606/
We arrived in Haapsalu (www.haapsalu.ee) with a population of 12,600 people, some museums and a well-preserved castle.
We were in the mood for a bit of luxury, so we decided not to camp in Haapsalu but checked into Haapsalu Hotell (www.estravel.ee/index.php?lang=eng&main_id=379,722,731). They say they are the best hotel in Haapsalu, but I have my doubts. Still it had everything we wanted for 40 € , which might be a bit expensive by Estonian standards but we enjoyed ourselves there. We went out for dinner and watched some television for the first time in almost two weeks.
