life in a small Town in Central Netherlands
Tuesday, March 8, 2011
I have been to Estonia last weekend, to the capital Tallinn. Very interesting historical place. Close to Russia as well, St. Petersburg is not so far away. I visited some Orthodox Churches; I find the temples fascinating, but I can't really follow/ understand the experience orthodox believers have. This was in a small church where everybody was getting ready for the sermon. Which includes lightning a candle in front of all present icons.
