Happy Independence Day! Happy 100th birthday Estonia!

It was a freezing -12 degrees in Tallinn this morning but I managed to make my way up to Toompea for the flag hoisting ceremony at 7:33am. It was great to see thousands of patriotic Estonians up so early to take part in the 100th birthday celebrations. I saw babies rugged up, people in wheelchairs, people both young and old. They were all cold but happy. It was wonderful to see! 

As a proud Estonian who was born in Australia, I would just like to say Happy Birthday Estonia! You are much loved!
