This pretty girl and her co-worker were greeters at the Olde Hansa on Vana Turg in Tallinn, Estonia – a Medieval-themed restaurant in the interesting old town. She encouraged us to take a peak inside – “you don’t have to eat, just look inside, it’s beautiful”. We did peak inside and then she was happy to let me take her photo.
The old city of Tallinn has an incredibly rich texture with winding cobbled streets, public squares, and interesting architecture as might be expected of a city with a history that stretches back over a thousand years. The old town has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site and paradoxically today’s Tallinn is listed among the top 10 digital cities in the world, and is the home of Skype.
We passed several souvenir carts with girls in dress as well. We had unusually fine weather when in Tallinn; we had expected somewhat dreary days of 10C but it was bright, sunny and warm. She must have been warmer.
