Dining Out in Tallinn, Estonia

12 04 2017

The final (and there wasn’t much other) dinner in Tallinn during my short visit to the capital city of Estonia turned out to be the highlight of the trip thanks to our Finnish host.  Blessed with good company and well-prepared, delicious dishes and lovely wines, everyone including yours truly was very content (read full).

The Tallinn Creative Hub – Kultuurikatel

9 04 2017

One of the venues of the convention I was at recently in Tallinn, Estonia was this former power plant, the home of Kultuurikatel or the Tallinn Creative Hub.

It looks like a factory or a construction site from the outside especially from where I was.

Inside quite a maze.

Lining up to get into the official opening reception of the convention.

Cheers.

The reception was followed by an anniversary party for one of our business associates.

Happy 15th.

Vene Kultuurikeskus, the Former Soviet Officers Club in Tallinn, Estonia

8 04 2017

During my recent visit to Tallinn, Estonia, I was attending a convention and some of the events held during the day took place at Vene Kultuurikeskus or the Russian Cultural Center, a former officers’ club of the Soviet navy.

Lunching

Maybe it had something to do with the way the building was built but the whole time it was so cold inside!!





Glögg to Go

Under the beautiful but bitterly cold sky of Tallinn, Estonia, “glögg to go” seemed like the perfect idea.

In a coffee cup with a straw. Brilliant.





A Walk in the Charming Old Town of Tallinn, Estonia

2 04 2017

I have been spending time in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, for the last three days attending a convention.  The first day when we had free time during the day was most lovely weatherwise though very chilly.  My friend and I enjoyed a walk in the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Old Town of Tallinn.

In the morning. It was only going to go up to 2C during the day.

And the following morning, it snowed.

 

 





To the Fish Market! in Guangzhou, China

20 03 2017

The fish market in Guangzhou, China is wholesale/retail put together.  It’s a wonder they were open during the Chinese New Year holidays when I went. Huge live turtles and shellfish as well as chopped crocodiles were the most impressive.  ^^

 

 





To Market! in Guangzhou, China

19 03 2017

I was very surprised to find this local retail market open on the new year’s day in Guangzhou, China during my recent visit.  It was in the afternoon and I don’t think everything was open so not a lot of action going on but still impressively stocked with meats, fish, and vegetables as well as more curious variety of creatures such as crocodiles, live snakes, and Chinese softshell turtles.
