Finnish PM's First Visit to Estonia

Finland's new prime minister Sanna Marin made her first official visit to Estonia on January 10. Marin met with Prime Minister Jüri Ratas at Stenbock House on Toompea Hill where they spoke at a joint press conference. It was Marin's first official visit to Estonia and the second official visit she has made as prime minister after being sworn into office in December. Her first visit was to Sweden earlier last week.


Layers of time colliding – the 3 hommiku/maa targad, biblical Magi or Wise Men/Kings from the East arrived in what Estonians, like Italians call Firenze (Florence) on January 6th this past week. Dressed in Renaissance era clothing, as when the “Cavalcata dei Magi” (Cavalcade or Procession of the Magi) tradition began here in 1417, lords and ladies, falconers and others, led by drummers, the gift bearers (seen here) and the three kings on horseback, now pass by designer shops such as Chanel and Fossil. The procession ends in the Piazza del Duomo where a live Tarkade kummardamine (Adoration of the Magi) plays out in front of the theatrical nativity scene.  Photo: Anu Hint

In 1944, thousands of Estonians escaped invading Russia by migrating across the seas to Sweden, Finland, and beyond. Few have memory of this today—but those who do vividly remember all the little details: the smell of the boat, the taste of the bread... With this in mind, photographer Maria Spann set out to capture these particular memories through the eyes of those who endured this migration, and the objects they brought with them. Each set of photographs tells a story: of memory, of loss, and of new beginnings.

Please help spread hope and joy to the children and families in Estonia that presently cannot see hope or joy in their future.  If we are truly human, then this is the least that we should do. Three cups of coffee a year. It may not sound like a lot, but believe it or not, that is all it takes to make a difference in the life of an Estonian child or a family in desperate need. By forgeting that little indulgence, you can make a difference in the life of someone who has little hope for their future. You can make them believe and thus give all of us hope for a better future.

Estonia Begins Term as Member of UN Security Council
On January 1, President Kersti Kaljulaid raised the United Nations flag in front of the Office of the President at Kadriorg to mark the beginning of Estonia's membership of the UN Security Council. “Estonia will be at the toughest diplomatic negotiating table in the world for the next two years," Kaljulaid said. "This makes Estonia indisputably larger than our population, area or GDP naturally allows."
