We are back in Sweden after another day in Tallinn and another overnight cruise. Tallinn is great if a bit kitsch. I must say that I enjoyed the cruise a bit less on the return trip – in part because I had expectations, because it was an older boat but not quite as nice (no sequined curtain, no glass wall so we could watch the kids while they were in the kid area, and partly because it was Saturday night and a bit too much of a party cruise (e.g. drunken passengers stumbling around by 8 pm even though we did not depart until after 6). All the same, we slept quite well and, as a mode of transportation, I definitely give the overnight cruise a thumbs-up.
We are spending the day getting some laundry done, etc. Tomorrow it is off to Växjö, where I will present my work at a Tuesday afternoon seminar. This is our last week in Sweden and, although we have had a great time, it will be nice to get home to Vermont.
