A shot of a record cover, we call records LP's which is an abbreviation of 'Longplaying Plate'. I have the old record player of my parents and my fathers record collection. I am from the time that the CD did his introduction when I started to buy music. So I don't have records of myself, but I have taken an interest in playing records. The only thing is after each 30 min or less you need to turn the record, or put a new one on. Why did they ever called it longplaying..?
This particular record didn't impress me, it is some Belgium folksinger.

No idea what it means, it's a text on the wall of a restaurant in Tallinn. The language is un-readable, but probably it says something like, 'enjoy your meal' or 'a good meal is worth a good deal of money'
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.
Cities are constantly changing every hundred year a city looks different. Mainly due to simply wearing out or fashion houses are demolished and new ones erected. But sometimes some houses remain for various reasons. This is one of them, from 1602, tucked away between others on a one way street.
Studying the text above the portal the house has been an act of good works..
