a blog about the world's only post-communist nordic country.
That picture show wery good that our President Meri was good sense of humour.I think thatway we shud remember him.
I must say that my first reaction was of course sadness but now Im already thinking - he was such a funny and intelleigent person, I cant wait reading and rereading things from him and about him... He really is immortal for us.
I am saddened by the news of president Meri's passing and I wish to extend my condelences to you all. I couldn't do anything but notice that he also filmed Connan O'Brian's visit to Estonia.
He was one of the greatest politicans in Europe I have seen. I was always envying Estonia for such a President. And nearly each of his speeches were good for beeing published, what they did already even in German translation.
Pekka, I chose to include Conan in the photo on purpose. I barely heard this guy speak, as I got to Estonia after he was president. But I can tell you that even his funeral is symbolic.He's the first Estonian president to be buried in Estonia since they dug up Päts in 1990 and moved his bones to Metsakalmistu from Siberia. Should be interesting.
