Ilus Eesti, beautiful Estonia. My family's homeland. Estonia's countryside and people have an endearing gentleness about them which you fall in love with slowly and imperceptibly. I have nothing but respect and admiration for Estonians' courage and determination to survive despite centuries of repression, tyranny and foreign occupation. This blog aims to promote Estonian news, history and culture and seeks to enlighten readers about everything this unique country has to offer.

Happy birthday Mama
Today is my mother's birthday. She would have turned seventy-one had she not passed away unexpectedly last August. My heart is still heavy at her loss but at least she appears in my dreams from time to time and this comforts me. This morning I lit candles in her memory. Puhka rahus.
