US writer Todd Pitock has just won a very prestigious journalism award – a gold Lowell Thomas Award in the foreign travel category –  for his story about Estonia as the land of saunas and startups, the Facebook group "Estonian Saunas" writes.

Todd was an absolute delight to host.

Last Friday, the Salisbury community in Maryland gathered to welcome a group of very special guests to the city as we cut a ribbon on the new pedestrian bridge in Downtown Salisbury!


The bridge has been named the “Friendship Bridge” as a symbol of the strong connection and long friendship between Salisbury and the city of Tartu.

We welcomed Ambassador Kristjan Prikk, who has served as Estonia's ambassador to the United States at the Estonian Embassy in Washington since May, in his third diplomatic posting in DC over the years.

"Ain Anger was making his Met debut as Pimen and from the moment he stepped on stage, he was a strong presence.


His Pimen was measured in his body language, yet he was able to portray the torment in his character with subtlety.


As he began telling the story of Russia, Anger sang with a clarion tone full of smooth legato lines and gorgeous dynamic contrasts.
