|Tallinn, from the Upper Level of Old Town|
When we got off the shuttle, we saw some young people with rickshaws ready to take people on tours through the old part of the city. Linda and I looked at each other, then at Ray, and with little hesitation, decided to hop on a rickshaw and see the sites. We agreed to meet in a few hours for an early dinner at the Troika Cafe.
|George, our rickshaw driver and tour guide, was great.|
George, our rickshaw driver, was perfect for Linda and me. He took us everywhere and talked about the city. He took us to the upper level where we were able to get pictures of the whole city and see the interesting roofs on so many buildings. We saw Fat Margaret, which is a huge tower that was part of the ancient fortress protecting the city. We squeezed down the narrowest street in Tallinn and stopped by a park with lovely floral displays.
For the rest of this post, I am going to use pictures with captions to show what we saw. Ray got some of the same pictures that we did, but he did not make it to the Upper Old Town. How lucky we were that George drove Linda and me there.
