Jetset Europe: Red Herring

By Tallinn Brûlé

Yesterday I was enjoying a late breakfast (a herring, smoked salmon and caviar trifecta) on the Meriton terrace with a panoramic view of Tallinn, when a stream of youngsters disturbed my calm.

Noisy crowds look much better on the cover of a broadsheet (particularly when they’re trampling an authoritarian regime), but this assemblage was bearable.
