Another day started with a heavy rain. But the excitement to explore the unseen horizons and places, after arrival to a new place is always hard to overcome. To our joy, we failed to do that, so we head out to see the surroundings.
While on a walk, I managed to open a bank account, which was quite easy and fast. You do not need to have any address registration or any other document, and it was for free. In two days I will receive my card. Thank you E-stonia.
Also today was our first meeting with an estate agent (“broker or makler” here). She turned to be a nice lady, who agreed to pick us up to give a ride to the place which she offered. She drives a black fancy Ford. Thus, anonymously with Roksana we decided that we want to be maklers too. But maybe someday later. The style of the apartment we saw was exactly perfect for a couple that would want to move in there maybe 30 years ago. As for the present time we decided we will be looking for our options, as it was also a bit far away from the city center, which made it less convenient for us.
The thing, with which I was surprised during our first two days here, was the amount of Russian speakers. I think it went up, since my last time here. I honestly thought English would be spoken rather. If you refer to the people at any service, they would prefer to answer in Russian. No need to complain actually, as it will help us with our stay, however maybe ruin my plans to learn a bit of Estonian. Will be looking for language courses anyway.
Our walk took us a while, and we saw lots of nice places to enjoy calmness of Tallinn, to explore it secrets, feel the spirit of youth life and to make some great pics.
And the sea. We saw it today, made our greeting to it greatness and made a promise to come here very soon to cross it on our way to Scandinavia.
