Wednesday morning the weather was not so bad, but again we slept the whole passage, so tired were we after our late night. Tallinn was definitely a highlight. Very cute little town, with a little Russian influence, including borscht for lunch. The only drawback is that it's completely overrun by cruise ship tourists. We're getting accustomed to hitting all the must-see sights in 6 hours. We separated from our travel companion, Nick, when it was time to board the Silja cruse ship to Stockholm. The passage was much like the San Juan ferries, plying the narrow waterways between chains of tiny islands. We didn't partake of the all night buffet or disco, choosing instead to catch up on sleep and recharge for Stockholm, but this is famous for being a party ship. Sure enough, as we disembarked, nearly every passenger had their limit of 4 cases of duty free beer, even bringing their own handcarts!
