Penn State: Arriving in Tallinn – Day 0 and Day 1
From March 7-14, 2010, 17 students from Hillel at Penn State University will volunteer with the Jewish communities of Tallinn, Estonia, and Vilnius, Lithuania.
Below, participants share a few pictures from their first day in Estonia.
Here we are in the JFK airport, getting to know each other and relaxing before our 7 hour flight to Germany, en route to Estonia.
This picture was taken while walking from our hotel located in Historic Old Town Tallinn. While waking through the narrow streets of Old Town Tallinn, we were amazed to find this beautiful open space that once functioned as the city center and could not help but stop and take a picture!
Here are a few of the girls outside the restaurant, the Beer Haus, which features a pirate ship, as well as waiters and waitresses in traditional Estonian clothing. Not only did many of us get to taste "honey beer", but we also got our first taste of Estonian cuisine. Yum!
