A Walk Through the Peaceful Town of Cicheng

Our group had some time for sight seeing during our recent visit to the city of Ningbo, China and enjoyed a peaceful Saturday in the town of Cicheng.

Impressively calm!!





24+ Hours in London

15 04 2017

After about half an hour black cab journey from Liverpool Street Station to Paddington, checked into my hotel for a one-night stay.

Lovely color scheme

View from my room

The public terrace used as, if one wishes, a smoking area.

And then I stepped out for a visit to the Selfridges before my dinner appointment.

And then my dinner appointment wrote in to tell me he had lost his voice. Didn’t mind spending time in my hotel room for a change.





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).

Lunching in Tallinn, Estonia

7 04 2017

My friend and I, after walking the hills of the Old Town of Tallinn, Estonia in the morning, were ready to go for a good lunch.  Our obvious choice was the restaurant that seemed to be the most popular on social network reviews and so off we went to Rataskaevu 16 but at 12:30 pm w/o a reservation, the two of us were turned down although the restaurant tried to accommodate us in other sister restaurants nearby.  As we walked out of the restaurant dismayed, we ran into my friend’s friends that had a reservation for a table of four though they were three.  Quickly we went back in the restaurant with them and it was confirmed that they could take five people.  Lucky us.

The food was great, much better than they appear to be in the pix above.

 





Glögg to Go

3 04 2017

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.
