Thought for the day…..” Never let perfect be the enemy of better” ” It takes twenty years of hard work to become an overnight success”
A photo from a few years back, taken on the main railway station in Tallinn, Estonia. Estonia has been independent from the Soviet Union since 1991, although there is still a lot of Russian influence there, with around 45% of the population speaking Russian. It still shares a border with Russia, and another with Latvia. Around 430 000 people live in the capital, Tallinn. It has become known as the Silicon Valley of the Baltic due to the large IT industry there, with Skype being its most famous development. More than 1.5 million tourists visit the city each year, with about 1/3 of them arriving by ship. Plans to link Tallinn to Helsinki (Finland), some 80km away by an undersea tunnel have been put on hold, although they were part of the European Union plans to improve links to the area.
And one from the archives, taken a few years ago, the rare Rothschild giraffe.
