It's our second morning in Tallinn. The girls woke up a little later than yesterday....about 45 minutes later, so it was still very early!
For us, the rest of yesterday was about sorting out our essentials - we had to pay some money into the bank, asking them for another card for the account so that Rachel could have one in her name, then we had to go and speak to a company called Starman who would be able to do the home Internet for us, before getting my Estonian Sim so that we had a local number.
What we found out with the first two things, confirming what we already knew really, was how useful Russian is for us. In each, my opening line was to ask if they spoke English - they both replied very little. Then I asked in Russian if that would be better - and they both said yes. So I was able to arrange the banking and the Internet in Estonia, not because they spoke English, but Russian! With no handle on the Estonian language yet it's so valuable having the Russian that we do - even if it is far from perfect!
Waking up on our first Saturday morning, it was great hearing birds singing and a fresh breeze coming through the door that leads onto the balcony in our bedroom. It's in these moments when you are reminded of the good things God has done and you praise him all the more.
