75 years ago, nearly 10,000 Estonians were deported to Siberia during the very early hours of June 14th. The deportations targeted various categories of anti-Soviet elements and "enemies of the people”. Most of these people left in cattle cars and never returned. Today, in #Tallinn ‘s Freedom Square, the victims of the 1941 June deportations (called juuniküüditamine in Estonian) were commemorated with a memorial ceremony and an “Sea of Tears” installation.What a beautiful sight for such a sad history.

We went to a Turkish Hamam tonight, very unique experience. You go into a very hot marble sauna for 15 minutes then you are taken by a masseuse into a large room and told to laid down on a marble slab. Then the masseuse scrubs your body very roughly then washes you head to toe with lots of bubbles! Afterwards you rest. Thanks @gracieleighz for making this a must on this trip! I am sure I will never forget this. #istanbul #turkey #hamam #sisterhood
