We were just detained by Russia for ten hours!

As we missed the stupid bloody busses yesterday (NOT OUR FAULT), the one we eventually got arrived at the Russia/Estonia border one and a half hours after our visas expired so they detained us in a horrible, freezing room where they made us sleep on the floor, shouted at us then ignored us and kept bringing a sniffer dog into the room. At one point an air raid siren went off and a bunch of Russian soldiers ran out shouting, we thought we had been caught in the midst of a war!

We had to wait so long because we had to pay to extend the visas but apparently ATM's just don't exist in that part of Russia so we had to wait for the bank to open at 9:30am. We then were kept for another two hours. It was the single most unpleasant experience of our lives.

If anyone dares challenge how intrepid and fearless we are then we couldn't possibly be responsible for our actions.

The funny thing is, at the end of the last post we said 'we hope we ACTUALLY get to Tallinn to learn it's interesting history, seriously, with our luck, we may not.' How right we were.

We will blog once we have washed the stench of detainment of us at the hostel (if we ever bloody get there!)
