Small squads of tourists heading to the palace in Kadriorg Park, each with a different photo to take,
It is a mini-Versailles according to the locals.
The President’s pink house is there for all to see
chatterers on seats,
beautiful blondes dressed in black without a hair out of place even in the breeze, sitting at cafes drinking lattes and being seen.

gardens reflecting in ponds, and
parents pushing strollers
This is Kadriorg Park.
