Rubber, Anybody?

Rubberland on Raadi Military Airfield. Notice the formula 1 tyres:) About the now abandoned airfield: strategic bombers carrying nuclear warheads used to take off and land every 10 minutes - used to watch them land through kitchen windows in 1980ies. Maybe next time I'll show the runway too, this time it was a bit dark for my shitty camera. Photo by Vahur, June 2014

In South Estonia, people like it big. For example, we build huge nail files that foreigners mistake for houses.

Estonia is practically an island - Baltic sea in North and West, Lake Peipsi in East. During Soviet occupation the sea was inaccessible to most of people. You had to get a permit to go to island Saaremaa or Hiiumaa, and even there it wasn't about yachting or boating a bit - only fishing boats allowed, boarder guards everywhere. (Don't ever bullshit me about equal and happy life in Soviet Union, I get agitated...).

Ok, after 1991 the sea is for people again. Thanks to European Union you can head out from Tallinn in your yacht and sail to Sweden and back, without any paperwork. By the way, Estonia still is pretty uptight with boating, too much paperwork, regular inspections etc on larger boats and yachts, so many Estonians register their vessel in Sweden, Denmark or Malta.

And finally, to come to what I really wanted to speak about: what is more beautiful than a yacht? It's a wooden yacht. Toomas bought this supreme vessel last year, has been repairing it with care. Now is only needs a new engine for manoeuvring in harbour. Made in Sweden in 1964. Enjoy and envy!
