Estonia ( most of you do not even know
where it is


Without looking, the capital is Tallinn. (I wasn't 100% sure, so I peeked.)
But I can't remember the capital of Lithuania.

Estonia is also home to one of my favorite composers...Arvo Part. I
frequently listen to his music while hacking away on trees in the basement!

hat's off to you :-)
I did not even check but I guess you are right, excellent Iris :-)
I thought that Latvia and Lithuania were the same .. so many small
countries and forgotten republicks from the former Communist empire
that I do not even bother to know they exist
there are wonderful places but too cold in all seasons for my
taste and there are so many others far more interesting and closer for
me to see..

Yes, but....to those of us of Baltic descent, it is important. Through marriage, treaties, etc. Lithuania was once large enough to include much of the Austro/Hungarina Empire. It is a country rich in history and culture. Unfortunately, the Ukraines, Balts, and Poles never trusted there own people, let lone those of neigboring countries. So they sold out thier intersts to other powers that could grant them a supposed share of the spoils. Always a hard headed people, I bravely carry on the tradition.
