Tallinn, Estonia

I rode up to Tallinn, Estonia with Lori and Claudia. We rode the day-tour bus of the city and got to see many different parts of the city.
Its interesting to see how similary the Baltic countries are in both landscape and buildings.

Fall and Dreams

Things are really slow right now at work. And this is before the Ambassador's OMS arrives, so WHAT am I going to do then?!?! I guess I'll just spend my days at work learning Latvian and Russian, oh, and updating my blog :) !
It's definitely turning to Fall. The sun is out, but there is a definite "bite" in the wind. Latvia has a whole bunch of festivals during the Summer, but not really sure what kind of festivals happen in Fall/Winter, but we'll see! Leaves have started to drop off the trees and it's making me excited for the upcoming holidays! (Pics to some shortly)
Dreams are funny things. I had a dream the other night that I just remembered. For some reason I was cussing up a storm at someone. I mean, I try to not even THINK cuss words so to dream that I am yelling at someone with a whole slew of epithets spewing out of my mouth was WEIRD! I don't even remember who it was, but they really annoyed me so the wrath of Mischa was unleashed! Glad that's not how I am really!
