.. where Ikea finds metal mushrooms in Tartu :-O

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
guess what, last week i went to play a little bit of geocaching in Tartu! As u know, geocaching is lots of fun and takes you to lots of fun places. this time it took me to near a theater called Vanemuine. I have never been to a theater, so i don’t know much about it other than it is really old. in fact, it is so old that it has mushrooms out of metal growing out of the hill!! yes, look:

everybody knows metal mushrooms take AGES to grow, so this theater really has to be old.. and, u know the most funny thing – it started raining about 3 minutes after taking this fotograf! so, clear skies are not so gr8 at telling u whether it is going to rain or not, i’m afraid! so i did not have time to take too many more, although i wanted to take a closer look of this guy, also made of metal. he must be really really old too, i guess. i wonder what is he telling these mushrooms..? please let me know if u have any information about that, in the comments! tack!

i can secretly tell u that i found the cache, hehe ;) so, if u are in the area, check it out too! have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea goes to Tartu Snow Town

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea! Couple of weeks ago I was visiting my friends Muzzy and Aura again in Tartu. I have been to Tartu before but this time i had to go and check the snow town they had built there. and here comes some fotografs:

i have to tell you, it was quite chilly, something like -24*C. so as you can see, not too many kids or even giraffes playing there that morning. you probably wonder why didn’t Muzzy or Aura come along with me. it’s because i was in snow town before my visit to them, which was actually a secret. i love secrets a lot, as u know.

apparently, this snow town had quite a few tubes and sliding slopes for a lot of fun for giraffes and the like. it was not so easy to understand the actual figures, because when i got there this snow town looked like ancient snow town for some reason. but there was a frog, which is this one on this fotograf and then i think there was aslo one huge dragon – for all my dragon-loving friends to know. no moose’ however.

many tubes and slides, jei! this one was probably the most fun for me. exactly the right size too! great fun. probably everyone should have a little snow town in their back yard, i think? so, if you are in the area, you can check it out! i have also heard there is this new snow town in Tallinn as well, maybe i will go check it out some day, before it melts, hehe.. anyways, please write a comment if you have some great experience or fotografs of you in snow towns!

next time, i plan to post some pics from my trip to Tartu Maraton ski tracks. how did they know i was going to go there and posted this Tartu Maraton sign also on the snow town? how very mysterious…
