Trip from Finland to Romania

Second time, by car, straight South from Tampere to Cluj-Napoca, this time as a vacation. First stop is Tallinn, with its pretty old town. Always a pleasure to visit and walk around. We don't forget to stop at "Beer House" where they have one of the best beers I have tasted.

Do you have enough money? He has...A stop in Kaunas, Lithuania. No, it's not Kosovo or Baghdad, it's Kaunas...

... right across the street from this one.
The statue of what? Of a man.
This is something all Romanians should try...
The best looking place in Kaunas, trees are cut like in Paris and cars are not allowed.
This is to remind you that even Poland built a car once... called Polonez... and still working.
We have a joke with this hamburger guitar, but it requires gestures.
I simply love war machines... while not @ wörk. This is the famous T34, from Russian side.

This is Russian plane, I don't know any make or model.
But yes, I would like to fly on its wings.
And here, we proudly present, the victory against fascism and the 3rd Reich. Thank God they won! Who know where we (eastern block) would be today without our friends, who used to roam around eastern Europe in their T34s? Certainly somewhere else, closer to the present maybe.
This "statue" still stands in Slovakia, symbolizing the big thank we all (eastern Europe) owe to Mother Russia and Mr. Churchill.
