picking berries in summer tartu estonia
Climbing up the cherry trees to pick their summer berries. (Tartu, Estonia) The next day, when we were eating out the back, a bird flew into the net and got itself badly tangled. But Hiie managed, with a great deal of patient cutting of threads, to free the bird - and off she waddled across the grass, in a state of shock, to hide under a nearby tree.

tartu theatre estonia
It's easy to ride around on bicycles in Tartu as it's pretty flat and there's not that much traffic. As well, it has good bike paths. This was a theatre we cycled past. We actually saw the band 'Curly Strings' there last year -they are a very famous estonian folk band.
