About three and a half hours

I got up at 3:45 AM this morning, to catch the 2.5 hour train, to muck about at the airport for 2 hours, for a 2.5 hour flight, then i had to muck about for 2 hours to get in this bus.

The bus has wi-fi because Estonia apparently rocks that way

It’s not necessarily a long trip as a whole but there’s quite some switching between modes of transportation

Are buses in your country generally known for being on fire?

To follow up on that, Tallinn (the capital city) is also really pretty from what I’ve heard and I’m looking forward to spending time there

I was a bus riding through Estonia when my brain switched into an instant video chat in HSE Bristol's EU In-Office Support Unit (EISU). The messages were hilarious, though not all of them came from the Lord. There were a lot of somewhat lighthearted, ironic references to my reading, which I found amusing. In turn, I was sitting at a big black counter with a thin receptionist who looked like someone your mother might have met in Oxford.

"If you've got anything to say, let me know."

I thought: This

What’s it like being able to transform into a bus

Also, are you having a good time in Estonia with your partner

Kinda stressful to be honest. People are always asking me to drive them everywhere and then when I tell them I don’t have time they’re like “what the hell dude you’re a bus that’s, like, your purpose?”

Also heck yeah. We’ve been volunteering at this community center/school and have been cooking and baking a lot for groups of 15-20, and everyone is ecstatic about our food. Also, the kids are adorable and I’ve been playing a lot with them (playing here constitutes just running after them)

Right, I hadn't been on here for a while

I mean, as I said before, we did a lot of cooking and baking. Soup, stamppot, risotto, pumpkin/apple/strawberry pie... All in all everything was very well received. We'd get up in the morning, make oatmeal for breakfast, and then start on lunch.

One adorable thing is that at this manor they do a little song before each meal, like some sort of prayer. It's... adorable :-D . It goes like:

thank you for the food
thank you for the food
thank you for the food
thank you for the food
it's healing
it's healing
it's healing me
I love you
I love you
I love you

Of course, very simple (and generally done in Estonian) but we both thought it was a nice way of showing appreciation for your food.

Free days were spent in a mixture of chilling and going out. Tartu is a nearby village which was nice, and we spent the last three days in Tallinn, the capital city. Tallinn I have deemed "okay", its old town is very pretty but I wasn't very taken by the rest of the city.

let's see what else

I learned to juggle and am still doing it at home! The manor does a lot of things with circus stuff, but most notable in all of Estonia was the current hype regarding kendama:

Image
one of these

Seriously, 50% of Estonia's youth was walking around with one of these. It was the playground hype, and this included the kids at the manor

we of course went to a christmas market and both got our traditional ugly christmas mug, but my partner's broke :fluttersmith: . They then bought a new one, which was apparently a decorative one, because it broke when they poured tea into it.

then they said fuck it and created their own using a white mug and a marker, weird problems require weird solutions :v:

i suppose that's about all I can come up with now, thanks for asking :-P
