Familiar brands and possibly a familiar sääsk (mosquito) seen at an Estonian supermarket stand featuring insect repellents (putuka-/tõrje/vahendid) with the message Peata pinin! – "Stop the buzz!" The noun pinin and verb pinisema are great onomatopoetic words ("Piiii" seems a slightly higher pitch than "buzzzzz", but is ultimately in the ear of the beholder and not subject to debate.)

The largest and most important life sciences business convention, BIO 2018, was held in Boston on June 4-7, 2018 and Estonia was proudly represented by six companies at the world class exhibit. 

FOTO 1 laevuke

This purjekas made by 4th grader Tuule, made of a muna/rest (egg carton) turned out to be very laevatatav (navigable). Perfect weather, including the right amount of light wind, not to mention the shipbuilder's name (tuul = wind, tuule = of the wind / the wind's), carried this laevuke eastward from Soela sadam (harbor) on Saaremaa island's north shore across the Triigi-Sõru parv/laeva (ferry) line's route connecting Saaremaa and Hiiumaa island last Sunday. With the help of a camera's zoom lens, we could make out her little sail for almost 3 hours and hope someone receives the message written on her puri (sail): "Ma soovin, et Eestil oleks igavesti jõudu." (I wish that Estonia remains strong forever.)
