    Hello! Just a short notice to announce that Pia has been here in Tallinn to
    teach us SCD and she also called a ceilidh last Friday. She definitely has
    charmed us all. :-) 
    
    There are some pictures from the ceilidh at our website - I will add SCD
    pictures ASAP.

    Eike will know better than me, but we had classes in all these wonderful old
    buildings from 1400 and 1500.   Had a wonderful time - Eikes group and Eike
    herself are really go-ahead and keen and all really wonderful people.

    The mails about Estonia bring back happy memories.  In July 2003, members of
    the Monaco and Mougins Scottish Dance Groups made a week's visit to Estonia.
    Thanks to friends Sirje and Andruus, not to mention the friendly folks at
    Estravel in Tallinn we saw a great deal of this fascinating country and even
    managed a little dancing.  At a Folk Festival on Saaremaa we were taught a
    little Estonian dance and my last memory is of our 4 friends dancing it for
    us on the quay in Talinn as we took the JetFoil back to Helsinki.  A short
    feature is available on the Monaco SCD web site -
    http://www.scottishdance-monaco.20m.com/estonia_1.htm
    
    To anyone considering a visit to Estonia, I say - Think no more, Go Now,
    before the Cruise Ships wreck the place ....

    Yes - definitely worth a visit - it was wonderful, the weather fantastic,
    the surroundings restful - I was treated like a VIP and everybody was so
    friendly and nice, and Eike has already grasped the beginning of SCD - I was
    put up in a B&B attached to a Daycare Center for the Elderly!!!!! :>)
    During the day - little old ladies kept running past me in the corridors as
    I walked gingerly to my room.

    	Do you think that was because they went to bed early?? 
    Or earlier??

    It was a day center - and truth be told I was in a house attached to it -
    except for the one night when I slept in a room in the center itself -
    sharing with two budgies called:  Hans and Grethe.
