Eating our way through Tallinn, part two…
At Draakon III by Town Hall, a more-than-decent bowl of elk soup for lunch with cabbage and boar and elk pies.
We couldn’t resist a return trip to Pierre’s Chocolatier for white chocolate cheesecake, more amazing truffles and hot chocolate.
Finally a feast fit for a Royal Hunt at Olde Hansa - we tried bear meat for the first time, along with an endless supply of honey beer, wild boar, game sausages, ginger turnips, herb bread with nuts, and much more. St. John’s cake (think fruit) and rose pudding for dessert. George R. R. Martin would be proud.
I fear we may sink the boat on our way back to Stockholm tomorrow….

Finally i get to listen to Erkki-Sven Tüür’s “Show”
Action - Passion - Illusion
with the Tallin music school symphonic orchestra
under Risto Joost’s baton.
I fell in love with this music (and her) when i saw Anu Tali conducting this and some other pieces from Estonian composers but nowhere to find that :(
Yukio Mishima, Patriotism (憂国 Yūkoku), 1961.
On November 25, 1970 Mishima actually committed seppuku, after delivering a speech intended to inspire a coup d’état. After Mishima’s suicide his widow Yōko requested that all existing copies of the film be destroyed. But in 2005 the original negatives were discovered in perfect condition, in a tea box at a warehouse at their home in Tokyo. The film was released on DVD in Japan in 2006, and then in the US by the Criterion Collection in 2008.
