Day 5: A Place I've Been

I couldn't chose ONE picture of a place I've been but many pictures from one beautiful place: Tallin Estonia.

It is not the obvious European destination. Unlike London or Paris, Tallin doesn't have a reputation for being big and famous but it reminded me of a place you would find written in a fairy tale.

I went to Estonia for a very quick, 12 hour trip. We took a sleeper train from Moscow, arrived in Estonia by morning, then that evening we were leaving the country bound for Russia once more. It was lovely and will forever stand out in my mind as one of the most magical days of my life.

Have you ever heard about Walter Mumm? He was married to your great grandma Marsden, and he was from Estonia. Although he was around when I was a baby; I don't remember him until my trip to England in 1975. My cousin Sean Ditty was serving a mission in England at that time (I didn't see him there). While I was at Grandmas one afternoon, she asked Walter to go get a letter that Sean had written to her so that she could read it to me. I remember Walter moving rather slowly as he returned with the letter. There was a bar of chocolate protruding from the envelope, and he said something to me like, "he sent you a bar of chocolate." I liked Walter, he was a nice man. Everytime I hear about Estonia (which isn't very often) I think of Walter.
