Estonian Television

We checked into our hotel this afternoon, and immediately set out to an important task: watching television. Specifically, Estonian television. And even more specifically, an Estonian game show. I don't know the name of the game show, but while watching it, the following games were played:
  • Getting dressed up as Santa Claus (to the tune of "Here Comes Santa Claus"; the victory music was "Jingle Bell Rock").
  • Identifying various geographic locations on a map, using push pins.
  • Drinking an unidentified red liquid through a straw.
  • Blowing up yellow smiley face balloons.
  • Answering trivia questions: If you answered a question correctly, the assistant lady gave you a black circle; if you got a question wrong, she took it back.
  • Eating a plate of cookies.
    After the game show, a soap opera came on, but we had to turn it off because Ed nearly hurt himself laughing: It was a South American soap opera, with one guy talking over the actors in Estonian; we could still hear the original actors speaking their parts in the background. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
