|Oh hi, just some nightmare fuel coming through...|
|No idea what that is, but it looks dangerous!|
Up on the campus is the National Museum of Estonia, in the remains of the original church for the campus.
A reminder that we were there just after midsummer, all this nice golden sunset glow is happening late in the evening. Like 10:30 PM. No wonder we were out so long drinking...
|Screw your gargoyles, we've got DRAGONS!|
A number of monuments are situated on the hilltop in the center or town, mostly to scientists and educators. A nice break from seeing war monuments everywhere!
|This guy studied embryos and shit.|
Barclay de Tolly is an ancestor of Mr. Crafty, and a noted war hero. What is more remarkable about the monument, is that it was not erected by a victorious state or a wealthy patron. The men who served under Barclay paid for it themselves!
Our last experience in Tartu has no pictures, because none would have come out. In the perpetual twilight and nearly totally dark skies of summer, we explored the ruins of the derelict soviet airbase. Also, photos might be considered evidence... or something.
Our tour of the northlands will continue, I've got plenty of photos still to share!
