What’s there to say about Estonia that hasn’t already been said? I mean, the country’s got so many umlauts in its alphabet, it might as well be a poster from Ikea.
But seriously, folks, Estonia only has a population of 1.29 million. It’s one of the least populous nations in the European Union AND the Eurozone. An Indian train car on The Amazing Race is more populated than that.
And, Estonia, who do you think you are with your mixed Nordic and European cultural background and your third-highest press freedom in the world? You’re like that kid in fifth grade who gets along better with his classmates’ parents than his classmates because he was annexed to the Soviet Union for 50 years. I mean, seriously.
Okay, let’s talk borders and I don’t mean what used to be my favorite bookstore. Estonia’s bordered by the Baltic Sea to the west and Lake Peipus to the east. Uh, pick a body of water, am I right? What are you, a half-island?
