Our brief visit to Tallinn, Estonia was a very cold one. We walked the streets for a while, checking out the flower market, shops, and cafes.  We shopped for some souvenirs to take home to our kids, and looked at sweaters for Kathy. We ended up buying two Estonia sweaters, and a few souvenirs for the kids.

We stopped in a local cafe to get a bite to eat. Kathy ordered a beer and some chili and I ordered cottage pie and coffee. We also asked for an order of their deep fried garlic bread. It sounded intriguing.

The garlic bread was cut into small strips, and was a dark dense bread. It was powerful but very good.

Well... the chili that Kathy ordered was HOT! (spicy hot). This stuff put jalapenos to shame. As we looked around the cafe we noticed that it was a very popular dish, noting several pretty young women were seemingly enjoying the stuff. The chili was served over rice.

My cottage pie was a dish with layers of ground meat and potatoes in a bowl and covered with a thick layer of melted cheese. It was very good.

I'm sure we would have enjoyed our visit much more if it had not been so darned cold. Kathy had seen an item of clothing she would have liked to have returned to and bought, but we weren't sure exactly where we had seen it and decided it was just too cold and we returned to the ship.
