The summer has begun.
I haven’t talked about this summer yet, since I generally just focus on food and not what’s going on in my life. But this summer is going to be awesome. Estonia’s traditional Song and Dance Festival, held every five years, is taking place at the beginning of July. Not only do I get to participate as a singer for the first time ever, but my family and scores of my friends are coming from the United States and Canada to also take part in the event. So I get to see people I hardly ever get to see during the most beautiful time of year. I’m taking two and a half weeks off of work so that I can be on vacation too, just like all the visitors. If I start to chronicle what I’m eating and drinking during that time, it will definitely include many, many photos of beer glasses out on terraces somewhere in the Old Town at 9 pm, when the sun is still shining.
Ah, summer. I’m so excited.
