tartu-3In Tartu today. How surprisingly charming this little Southeastern Estonian town is. Perhaps little for me, but it is the second largest city of Estonia after Tallinn, boasting a population of about 95,000 people. Yes, really. And who knows how many students.tartu-2The vibe here is historic, hip, and smart. There are hipster cafés, cool murals, old wooden houses, and an almost Cambridge-y breeze in the air.  Naturally I am here for the smarts and the science. It’s in the air, too.tartu-1(Tartu, Estonia; May 2017)
