April 16: Tallinn – across town

After the Open Air Museum we took the bus and tram to the other end of town, to quite another kind of museum.

Here's the START! of the bus ride — a fairly sparse, extremely straight suburban road adjacent to the museum.

Curiously directed vines.

Those eaves are dangerous.

6581

Self-powering street lights, I think, through these mini wind turbines.

When it comes to isolated high-rises, you can count on one name. Audi.

A fire/paint-color wall bounding these two houses.

Back by Vanalinn, walking along the park to the north of the city wall toward a tram stop.

A mysterious old building beyond layers of tracks.

A tram going in the opposite direction from our destination. Cheery.

The interior of the tram we took. It was an exciting ride; it seemed like the tram could derail at any time.

6606

A curious blue edifice with a convenient exterior curtain rod.

A curious church.

Presumably, flower boxes for later in the season.

This appears to be a black-headed gull, catching some rays.

6616

Strutter and fluffer. (It was a windy day there and thus surprisingly bone-chilling at times despite the sun.)

6619

Kadriorg Palace, an 18th-century palace that is the old national art museum and right down the street from the new art museum, KUMU, which was our destination.

The palace's complex terraces.
