Eesti on My Mind


Tere! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but now I have a
good reason to say a word or two. Last Saturday, I was walking in Luxembourg
city center on my way to watch the Rugby World Cup final. In the crowded street
a blond girl in her early 20s approached me asking if I spoke English (my first
thought was that she wanted me to donate money to charity, or that I’d have to
answer some questions for a marketing survey). When I said yes, she started a
well-practiced sales pitch: She was a member of a rock band called Illumenium (never heard of of it before) from Pärnu, Estonia, and they were in the middle of a world tour. She wanted me to buy their album, which would
help them on their way to world-wide fame :). I have to admit it wasn’t much of a
sales pitch (it didn’t convince me at all), but when she mentioned the word
‘Estonia’, I was instantly converted into a customer. She kept talking but my
thoughts were already back in Estonia; I remembered my visit to cloudy Pärnu in
the summer of 2013, and some of the other great Estonian moments I’d left
behind. I realized that I truly miss Eesti. I told her something along these
lines: Girl, I don’t normally buy things in the street – I don’t even have a
device that actually plays CDs – but since you’re Estonian I will be happy to
do so this time. I bought the CD, exchanged ‘head aega’s with her, and
departed. But those thoughts of Estonia
have stayed with me.
