Current time in Taillinn is seven hours ahead of EST (so 837 PM now.)

Another ferry line with a great summary of Taillinn: (history, sights, what to see)

SPEAKING OF AMAZING...
I was in Tallinn today with the interns and the GC&SU team that served at Brett's camp, and while we were there we wandered into the square in Old Towne.  I heard one of the guys say, "They're filming something over there...wait, isn't that the guy from 'The Amazing Race?'"


My head whipped around to where they were pointing, and I yelled out "Phil!!!"


Yes, it was in fact Phil Keoghan, host of "The Amazing Race," filming a segment for what I guess was the Estonian leg of my favorite reality show EVER.  I almost peed myself.  I'm not even ashamed to admit it.  It was incredible.


The craziest part about it is that my mom and I had just had a full conversation about the show on Wednesday when we were talking on Skype.  We've been talking about applying for the show for awhile now, but we have to wait until I'm 21 so I'll be eligible to race.  We explained our full strategy to Chris the other night...when we're one the show, we will be the crazy Christian women that praise Jesus and throw our competitors under the bus.  We will annihilate the competition.


Really, I just took the moment as a sign from God that I am definitely supposed to be on the show.  Then my beloved Phil and I will be reunited, and I won't have to worry about the production people coming up to me and asking me not to yell at him and to avoid standing in the back of the frame and staring.

If so, ignore it.
(I haven't found anyone posting this?)

The Port of Tallinn has a shipping page with arrivals (also a webcam, but I couldn't get that to work). The only ship I saw from Stockholm with a 10a.m. arrival was the Baltic Queen.

 :lol: The term "Amazing Race" is not unknown to the Estonians, at least if you believe this tourist web site:
 Tallinn Adventure
OK, it's a team building thingie, but how ironic that the "real race" is coming to town.  :funny:

We should not forget that teams had to get from Amsterdam to Stockholm in order to presumably do a leg and then get on the ferry Stockholm to Talinn.

Here are the possiblities for flights AMS to ARN on Friday July 31:

KL1107 0655 0855
KL1109 0925 1125
KL1113 1210 1410
KL1115 1440 1640

9 legs total, 8 legs spoiled! (Counting UAE as 2, unless we have only 10 legs.) Likely 2 more to go.

Only 1 new country though. :(

I think teams flew from Amsterdam to Stockholm, did some tasks and learned that the leg is not over and they take the ferry to Tallinn to finish the second half of the leg.
