    I know nothing about the country or the ppl, but they are made in the image of God, and I love them.

    Lol, never met one till now, seems a little abrupt to me so far...:D

    The place sounds like a sportsman's paradise:

    "... Estonia's number of islands and islets in the Baltic Sea is estimated at some 2,222, and the country has 2,355 including those in lakes. Two of them are large enough to constitute separate counties: Saaremaa and Hiiumaa.[159][160] A small, recent cluster of meteorite craters, the largest of which is called Kaali is found on Saaremaa, Estonia.

    Estonia has over 1,400 lakes. Most are very small, with the largest, Lake Peipus, being 3,555 km2 (1,373 sq mi); it is the fifth largest lake in Europe,[161] and also the largest trans-boundary lake in the whole continent. There are many rivers in the country. The longest of them are Võhandu (162 km or 101 mi), Pärnu (144 km or 89 mi), and Põltsamaa (135 km or 84 mi).[159] Estonia has numerous fens and bogs. Forest land covers 50% of Estonia.[162] The most common tree species are pine, spruce and birch.[163]..."

    Met a few when in Lithuania back in the USSR days. I was working with Christians in USSR. Good people who felt "under the yoke" of Russian control (Russian troops in Vilna). They had come from Tallinn.

    My daughter is taking a Baltic cruise and will visit that country (we hope). With current tensions, she is worried about it already

    I think they are brothers of the Finnish people.
