The origin of the name "Tallinn(a)" is certain to be Estonian, although the original meaning of the name is debated. It is usually thought to be derived from "Taani-linn(a)" (meaning "Danish-castle/town"; Latin: Castrum Danorum). However, it could also have come from "tali-linna" ("winter-castle/town"), or "talu-linna" ("house/farmstead-castle/town"). The element -linna, like Germanic -burg/-berg and Slavic -grad/-gord, originally meant "castle" but is used as a suffix in the formation of town names.

I love how you captured the street of this town almost unknown to those, like us, who live in the south of Europe. I like the sunrays coming on the yellow house and how you were able to even capture the bicycles, other element so diffused there, in this desert street.
