Long time. No post. 🤷🏼♀️ I have been very busy, but at the same time, I feel like everything is hanging somewhere, and not going anywhere. Duh. But I decided to make a post about our nice family time in Proto avastustehas, where was an ’inventors month’, with a big program!
Midsummer or St. John’s Day, Jaanipäev as it is known in Estonia, is one of the oldest local celebrations. Late June is the perfect time for a holiday in the blooming nature where days extend into nights, with barely any darkness in sight.
For us, Estonians, Midsummer is pretty important. It is the longest day of the year & it has been celebrated for a very long time with different traditions. Most common ones are probably that young lovers wander through the forest looking for a lucky fern flower said to bloom only this night. And that if you find the glowworm, you may expect a great fortune! 🔮
On the quiet evening on 22nd of May, new place called Sonora Cafe opened its’ doors to greet all the friends with a pre-party, before the official opening to everyone. Sonora Cafe is located in the Old-Town of Tallinn, Vana-Viru 6 & locals probably know that place before as Popular Cafe.
Sonora Cafe is a ‘little sister’ to the popular bar in Sauna street – Baila, which is at the moment temporarily closed, as there are still many regulations for the late night party places.
