Day 59: Snowflake Sonata

Today was a day of contrasts in Tallinn. The mix of rain and light snow created a mesmerising backdrop against the city's medieval architecture. The wet cobblestones reflected the grey sky, but there was a certain charm to it, a kind of muted beauty. I decided to explore the Old Town, and it felt like I was walking through the pages of a history book. The narrow alleys, the towering spires, and the quaint shops, all seemed to tell stories of times gone by.

I stopped by a local cafe, where I tried a traditional Estonian pastry. It was warm, flaky, and just the right amount of sweet. As I sat by the window, watching the snowflakes gently fall, I felt a sense of peace. It's moments like these that make travelling so special. The blend of the familiar and the unfamiliar, the old and the new.

Later in the day, I visited the Kumu Art Museum. The collection was impressive, spanning from classical to contemporary art. But what struck me the most was the way the museum was designed. The play of light and shadow, the juxtaposition of different materials, it all added to the experience.

As the day came to an end, I found a quiet spot overlooking the city. The lights began to twinkle, and the snowfall became more pronounced. Tallinn, with its rich history and modern sensibilities, has left an indelible mark on me. I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
