The Quiz was held again and the subject was Estonia. Some comments about the quiz:
Q: Name as many Estonian brewers as you can.
Everyone who has been there knew at least two. But still, there are some more and extra points were won by two girls (not men as expected) - Good work Aale and Tiiu.
Q: Who or what is known as 3 sisters in Estonia?
This is a famous building in the Old Town of Tallinn. It was built in 1362 (about 410 years before Captain Cook officially discovered Australia), renovated in 2003 and turned into a hotel where you have to pay from € 550 per suite.
Q: How many counties/states there are in Estonia?
Well, there is a coloured map of Estonian counties in club room, but only 3 people wrote down right answer. This was more like an open your eyes question.
- Just an interesting fact to know is that Estonian Air has 8 airplanes at this stage.
- Estonia’s highest point is 318 m above sea level (Suur Munamagi). It´s also the highest point in the Baltic States.
- If you take an airplane and fly the shortest route from Tallinn to Sydney, then you have to fly 15,225 km (roughly), the average diameter of planet Earth is only 12,742 km.
- The Estonian National flag flies on the top of "Tall Hermann" in Toompea, not that of the winner of the last football match. For the past few years, if QLD beat NSW in the State of Origin Rugby League match, the QLD flag was flown on the Sydney Harbour Bridge
- Now, the most important answer for the question, how to say "CHEERS" in Estonia? It´s TERVISEKS!!! Not prosit or anything like it.
Winner of this quiz was Ingrid, who won a free meal and drink at E-club.
This coming Thursday, 11th of August, we will ask questions about the European Union and Estonia. So far more and more people are participating to our club nights. Also, that night will be the last chance to practice for the Baltic Ball, 13th of August, in the Lithuanian Club.
|E-Club corner 2 The E-Club team was really surprised by the attendance last week (really, the week before). Of course, the first guests didn´t see last ones so some probably felt lonely, but there were about twice as many plates to wash than expected. The Estonian Master Chefs in Sydney practiced their skills making Cabbage Rolls (kapsarullid) and Swiss roll (rullbiskviit).|
