So, if you tuned in last blog we were taking a cruise to a land called Estonia. I don't think I had ever heard of this country before to be honest. So we didn't know what to expect. We got there in the late morning and had until dinner time to walk around. The city was really pretty- on the water with really old buildings everywhere. An old church was one of the first things we saw and it was beautiful. This is the best pic we got of it so you can't really tell how cool it was:

We wanted to climb to the top of it but it cost money so we passed. After that, we just walked around the city looking at the buildings and going in cute shops (if there was any doubt about who was writing this you now know its Erin with the word "cute"). Here are a few more pics:

And here we are on an ancient pile o' rocks...

Probably the highlight for Josh was shooting bows and arrows. Yep, you heard me right. Estonia liked to play up its medieval-ness so they had a place where you could pay to shoot arrows. He had to wear a cape and everything. He did surprisingly well having never done that before and got lots on the target. We'll post a video of it later but heres a pic of it:

Let's be honest, that was my favorite part of the day too. So hilarious! After our step back in time, we went to lunch. Had great Italian food downtown at an outdoor cafe. The most random point of the day was while we were eating lunch we looked over and saw this

People dressed up as Russian dolls. You know, the usual. They were passing out flyers for something but we couldn't read the language so we're not sure what it was for. Oh Estonia! The country used to be part of the USSR so there is a neat mixture of Europe and Russia there. Thus the Russian doll-fest.

So that was our mid-project trip! More soon about our last week and a half in Sweden!
