I've wanted to introduce distant readers to the Estonian word for snowshoes for many winters now. Finally, I got my chance before the snow melts! At least our snow over here in Eesti, because we've still got a lot of it to melt. My friend Andres Ideon had barely managed to post some winter hike pics on Facebook when I knew my chance had arrived, since I myself have yet to experience a räätsamatk (snowshoe hike), rabamatk (bog hike) with the help of räätsad, or what I can only imagine to be the glorious experience of strapping blades to your boots and skating on the ice-capped sea. - Swedbank and SEB, the two largest lenders in the Baltics, had their credit rating outlooks changed to stable from negative at Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, which said the Baltic economies are stabilizing, reports Bloomberg. - On May 29, tens of thousands of blondes will parade through the Latvian capital of Riga, as part of the city’s annual Go Blonde festival. The event, originally conceived to uplift the public mood during the country’s economic crisis is rapidly becoming a major tourist attraction for the whole region, and is expected to generate significant donations for Latvian child charity.

The speech on the Estonian 92nd Anniversary Celebration  in New York

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to our “aktus” on the occasion of the 92nd anniversary of the birth of the Republic of Estonia - a small windswept country situated on cliffs and with rocky soil in a geopolitically rather inhospitable corner of Northeastern Europe. Still, the Estonians persevere. This is our 4th of July, and I congratulate you - I congratulate us on this festive occasion!
I grew up in an Estonian refugee family in the US, but I returned to Europe in 1979, and for the past two decades I’ve lived in Pääsküla on the periphery of Tallinn.


Greetings from sunny Arizona!  As in the past few years I have again attended the "Eesti Vabariigi Aastapäev"  gathering of local Arizona Estonians in the Phoenix area. For me it is a 400 mile round trip by car even though I also live in the same state of Arizona, but worth going to every year. The annual event took place in Mesa, AZ, this past Sunday, 21 February  at the home of Jim and Linda Abbott, Linda's mother having come from Estonia. Also, this year it was drizzling rain which happens quite infrequent in the desert climate. There was plenty of ethnic foods such as hapukapsa supp, sült  and verivorstid along with desserts like kringel and much, much more. It was a very joyous occasion among folks who come from afar and many who see each other only once a year.

World Artists Experiences and the International Division of Maryland’s Office of the Secretary of State, in conjunction with Frostburg University, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Southern Maryland Center for Higher Education, Salisbury University, and Towson University, invite the public to attend free screenings of five international films, one each from Argentina, Estonia, Korea, Nigeria, and Russia. The Bridges to the World International Film Series is a statewide, month-long initiative in recognition of the State’s global reach and a reflection of those connections here in Maryland.
The series will run for five weeks from February 8 through March 12 at five venues throughout the state. Each film will be introduced, screened, and followed by a discussion.  Presentations begin at 7:00 p.m.  All films will be shown with English subtitles.  
The schedule for the Estonian film “December Heat” (“Detsembrikuumus”) is as it follows:

The Estonian Institute offers scholarships to holders of a doctoral degree or Master’s or to Doctoral students who are citizens of a foreign state and are studying at a university abroad, to write a research paper on an Estonia-related topic or to gather material for it.

Knowledge of Estonian is an advantage but not a requirement.
