Estonia, one of the newest European Union (EU) members and a place that 95 percent of our readers, I bet, know little or nothing about. So dear readers, EW is going to give you some basic travel log info to get you up to snuff and then we are going to hit you with the biggest deal of the century to get you an EU second passport through the graciousness of Estonia's forward looking government. This is one not to be missed.
OK let me get on with the travel log: Tallin, is the essence of Estonia. The capital of Estonia is a former Soviet-occupied city having a population of 412,950 living in an area a quarter the size of Singapore, It is filled with mediaeval buildings, iconic church steeples and quaint parks, as well as cafes, restaurants and lounges waiting to be discovered within its numerous nooks and crannies. "Estonia may be a cold country but the people have warm hearts which make visitors feel very welcome and comfortable. It has happened that what starts as a weekend discovery trip leads to a long stay.
Mr Aswani, who is also the honorary consul of Estonia to Singapore cme for a weekend and stayed for 12 years before going back to Singapore and applying to become Estonia's honorary consul in Singapore.
The most famous landmark in the city is St. Olav's church. It was the tallest building in the world in the 16th and 17th centuries, with its steeple reaching 159m high. It was said to function as a signpost for maritime traders to spot Tallinn far out at sea.
It was struck by lightning several times and burned down a few times too. During the Soviet occupation, it was also used as a radio surveillance point. Today, the church stands at about 123m and observation deck is open for visitors to get a view of the Old Town, a tourist attraction with numerous churches, medieaval markets and historic buildings flanked by cobblestone streets and iron street lamps.
So EW asked Mr Aswani what is the best time to visit? Year round was his reply. "In spring, you can enjoy the colourful blooms in the city. In summer, you can take long walks in the parks or enjoy a refreshlng ice tea in the summer terraces of the numerous restaurants in the Old Town square.

In my work, I need to make clear presentations of carefully supported opinions. But all of us – including me – need to unwind and gripe to our friends once in a while.
As it happens, quite a few EW readers are guys with whom I’ve had drinks and umm... informal conversations. And, quite a few of these conversations took place at establishments that advertise in EW. So, I’m going to consider EW subscribers my wider circle of friends and rant a bit., Pull up a chair, pour yourself a Margarita, and dive in.
Tonight I had a little bit of free time for myself. My work was more or less done for the day, I had the house to myself, and I decided that it would be a nice thing to sit down and watch something that was both entertaining and edifying. I wanted like to watch something that made me feel good and that encouraged me to do better and climb higher... that make me feel that productivity and growth are exciting and rewarding. Something that would add to me, not merely distract me.
I do have some things like that on my shelf, of course, but I wanted something new... and I kept drawing a blank as to what that might be.
Watching men reach toward the moon in the 60s was the most exciting thing I’ve ever watched on any kind of screen, but that was a long time ago.
I used to read Atlas Shrugged when I had to work late, because it was the only thing I had that encouraged me to create and produce. I have the DVD now, but the law of diminishing returns kicks in at some point.
At one time, Star Trek encouraged me, made me think about new things, and left me feeling good. But, that was quite some time ago. Firefly did the same sort of things for me, but its plug was pulled just as it hit its stride.
The Matrix is a superb allegory, but the “super-amazing” special effects leave me cold. “V” For Vendetta was great, but how many times can I watch it in a row?
There are some others, but my comments would be about the same.
I can find lots of movies that show me explosions and sexy babes. If I were 15 again, perhaps that would excite me.. but I’m not 15, I’m glad I’m not, and I have no residual desire to act like a teenager. I’m not going to laugh at stupid, vulgar humor in an effort to prove that I’m still young.
I don’t want stupidity, swear words and special effects – I want something that does more than “grab eyeballs;” I want entertainment that also encourages me and contributes something to my soul.
It would be really nice if we had some new entertainment that wasn’t made for lowest-common-denominator pre-teens. There are good screenplays ready to be filmed; it’s just that Hollywood has monopolized nearly all film making and is addicted to the production of shlock.
Okay, a good film does come along every now and them, but for each of those there are scores like Snakes On A Plane or Hangover 2. Woo hoo.
Film is a wild business, I know, but you’d think that with all the modern technologies, some good movies and shows could be made for a reasonable price. Hell, half the stuff on YouTube is made in someone’s living room or dorm room.
Someone really should look into this. That, I’d drink to... and throw money at! -- PR

THE NEW EXPAT WORLD IN THE POST 911 WORLD
The Most Interesting Readers in the World
As our readers know from their own life experience, to stay interesting one must always embrace the new, the honest, the ridiculous, and grab life with both hands and choke it until it gives you what you want.
Expat World Newsletter of International living is starting its 26th year of publication. During those 25 past years, the world has changed from a fun place to a rather scary place. The expat fun-and-games of yester-year have become the stuff of nightmares as governments-out-of-control crush all who will not submit. And humanity itself seems to have embraced the macabre as a way of life. And bankrupt governments everywhere are trying to squeeze every cent they can out of everyone and seizing anything they “rightfully” can.
For the New Expat whose mission is not to get ground up and to even prosper during difficult times, this is not a good time for protesting. In many places you can get killed. These times require a different set of rules and a different “kit” for the expat traveler than he’s need up until now.
So EW is re-inventing itself, as all the most interesting periodicals do, into THE meeting place of ideas and travel kit - protect your ass and assets- products for the expat/international living in a Post 9/11 world -- for the new, (PT)Prepared Thoroughly (EW)Earth Wanderer, whose affairs are always in order so that they can deal with any eventuality at a moment’s notice.
EW’s readers deliberately choose not to be victims of “life” wherever they reside and choose not to inflict hurt upon others for their own gain. In short, the New Expat claims sovereignty over himself alone and allows no other to claim otherwise. And he at all times strives to learn the skills and build his tool kit so that he is never caught in the web of society run amuck.
It is to this most interesting readership that EW pledges its next 25 years!
THE “RIGHT STUFF” FOR THE NEXT QUARTER CENTURY . . .
If you like what you read, we ask you to seriously consider a subscription to our 20-page, monthly EXPAT WORLD newsletter, airmailed to you anywhere in the world for use USD $89.95 for a 10-issue yearly subscription or our electronic version for US $30.00 or $55 for 2 yrs.

-- CRYPTOHIPPIE --
A FUNNY NAME BUT A SERVICE EVERY EXPAT MUST USE . . .
As the internet has evolved, so has evolved the ability of thieves to steal from you by making use of it and for governments to track you despite you engaging in lawful behavior or to keep you from seeking help or asylum -- whenever “they” want to.
All of you have read about the governments of Middle Eastern countries or China from shutting their populace out from sending messages or getting news is true. We have also heard that the same countries – and others – use forensic techniques to track messages or browsing to the users and imprison or kill them for doing and saying things that are permitted in other, better, countries.
The U.S. and UK (and more sophisticated countries) have a more interesting technique. They literally capture the content of all email, all browsing histories, all cell phone calls – especially international ones. They just save this and let the robots sniff it and sift it and sort it and mostly use it to support ongoing investigations and occasionally to start an investigation.
So whether it’s China for alleged political crimes or the U.S. for alleged financial crimes or political crimes, someone’s door usually gets kicked in and a lot of your stuff, computer included, followed shortly by other property, gets confiscated. More often than not, you never see your stuff again.
The way around this in the past was to use “anonymizers” that rid the system of the address of your starting place. They were cumbersome and slow. Some of these were free, run by local university hackers; some charged a fee. And for the most part they worked. The problem was they existed in one fixed location. As soon as the snoops learned how to spy from both sides of that location (a long time ago now), they ceased to serve their purpose. They also were very susceptible to brute force inquiries from law enforcement personnel and didn’t have lawyers or compliant rules for law enforcement agencies to follow in order to get information. While better than nothing, they were neither strong nor very secure.
And if all this weren’t bad enough, the news in the last few days about China bombasting targets on the internet with massive hacker attacks supplied more fuel to the fire. Now, it’s unlikely, unless you’re in China, that you personally are going to come under cyber attack. But, as government sponsored hacking cuts through barriers, they just mind find your stuff.
Enter a professional “virtual privacy network -- VPN” called cryptohippie.com to solve all these problems at a very affordable price. And they are offering to EW readers, a free, one-week, trial account so use our special link below to contact them. It’s definitely worth listening to the short pitch.
CRYPTOHIPPIE has been in business for six years. Its servers are under contract in several continents and uses multiple hops for all of your data. It also uses disappearing encryption keys, traffic crowding, erased IP addresses, and more.
The final server that an incoming system sees is always from a first world country: Usually Germany or the Netherlands. So there is never a question of being “blacklisted” by putting a server in the wrong country.
Using an encrypted VPN service means that anything “they” find is useless to them because they can’t read it. You’d think all communications would use this, but . . . they don’t.
So here’s how it works. You download and run two small pieces of software after you pay. Once you turn it on, your computer will NOT go onto the internet unless the software is authenticated. That means you will no longer be surfing the web naked. Of course, you can disconnect it in a couple of clicks if you want your real (local) internet address to show up for some reason.
You are always connected to the web via highly encrypted connections. Everything coming and going down the pipeline to and from your computer is encrypted. This gives any snoopers little, read no, information. It also NEVER reveals your true location via your local internet service provider. No one -- from the moment you use cryptohippie -- has any idea of where you are, who you are, or what you are saying! It doesn’t get better than that.
There is also a real reason to use this kind of service – besides the “paranoia” one. If you travel and drop into an internet café in Russia or Colombia in order to check your bank balance online, they may refuse to give any information because Russia or Colombia is a country that is rife with internet hackers and the internet service addresses are often blocked by non-Russian/Colombian countries – meaning you cannot contact your bank simply because of the country you’re trying to access your account from. Any of you who travel a lot will know what I’m talking about. And even if they let you access your balance, just try to make a wire transfer from a blacklisted country.
Your communications are transferred through multiple servers in multiple countries dedicated to this task but the whole process takes only a few milliseconds. And the addresses rotate to prevent anyone from monitoring your traffic. Your traffic remains encrypted as it works its way through the system until it emerges on the far side into an unencrypted system – your mom’s email account, for instance.
There’s another wonderful plus to the service. Most of you have heard of VoIP – voice over internet protocol. It uses bandwidth from your computer to turn it in to a telephone. Skype or MagicJack and others offer these services. It’s practically free to make international calls. The downside is that VoIP communication has no ‘anti-wire tapping’ legislation to prevent anyone from hacking into and listening to your calls. While free, it is one of the most insecure communications methods for anyone to use.
Now for the REALLY good news about cryptohippie. Remember when you use crytohippie VPN that ALL outgoing data from your computer is encrypted? Well, so is the phone call! That means that no one can snoop on what YOU say -- though they can snoop on what your recipient hears (unless THEY use crytohippie, too, and they no one ever hears anything – hint, hint!) AND, they cannot track the source of the call you make back to wherever in the world you are! While not a perfect solution to worry-free voice communication, it lets you talk to your mom without anyone knowing from where the call originated. This is a big deal for those of you on the move.
(This encrypted feature will not work for VoIP calls like Vonage that bypass your computer and connect directly to your internet modem. To work with encryption and/or secrecy of origination, the calls must initiate through your computer – and thus your secret software.)
Since Expat World tells you the truth, for the moment, Skype VIDEO has a secure end-to-end encrypted system (though there are rumored backdoors). But the problem with Skype is that you’ve got to catch the other person at their computer – when it’s a lot easier to catch them at their phone. So many of us use phones to let someone know to go to their computer for a Skype session. NOW you can use the VPN protected outgoing phone call to notify the person you want to talk to expect a Skype call. And no one can know where your VoIP phone call originated.
But there’s MORE really good news for you and your friends. The cryptohippie group started a secret service for its own technicians that they have now agreed to open to EW customers: sign up for an email account through them (free once you’re a member) and then download some free software to your browser and set up some stuff via a nice video installation instruction, and NOW your emails stay encrypted from when then leave YOUR computer to when they get to the computer of any other cryptohippie user. Not only will no one be able to read your messages, but no one will even know you communicated! There is no encrypting or decrypting for you to do. It’s seamless. As soon as your member friend gets your email, decrypted on his own computer, it’s erased from the cryptohippie system and gone forever. (Or, you can store your mail on cryptohippie’s secure sever if you like – in its encrypted state – up to 1GB) -- that way your computer has nothing on it to cause you problems AND there is no record of where it’s stored or even the IP address of the storage device.)
We all know there’s hushmail. And it’s a good service and recommended. It’s got a couple of issues. One, although it is FREE, it’s free only if you use it lot. If you forget to check it for three weeks? It’s dead and all your messages are locked until you pay (or deleted if you don’t pay.) Two, every time you want to check hushmail you’ve got to log in and it takes a few minutes and you never know if you have messages or not until you’ve wasted five minutes.
With the cryptohippie system, emails just show up, decrypted, in your own email inbox, -- but with you knowing that not another person in the world for the next 1000 years is going to be reading them during their journey to your computer.
Your challenge is to get all your expat pals to sign up through the EW link so you can share your thoughts in total privacy (and they get the free trial, too, like you did.)
But cryptohippie just gets better and better . Imagine that everything you say to another cryptohippie member is wrapped in a kryptonite cocoon that no one can see inside. That is exactly what is happening PLUS everything inside the cocoon is encrypted to very high standards PLUS the whole thing is invisible to anyone wanting a look-see. That means that when you use Skype video inside the cryptohippie cocoon, all the backdoor security issues with Skype are meaningless because no one even knows you’re using Skype let alone what you’re saying. If the person on the other end of the VoIP phone call is also a cryptohippie member? Then the cocoon makes it invisible on the outside and the encryption makes it impenetrable on the inside.
The sniffer robots can get confused. So can people. An innocuous piece of browsing can bring the wrath of God upon you. You mention too many of the wrong words? BAM. You visit the wrong website? BAM. Use the wrong words in a phone call? BAM! (All international calls are recorded and computer analyzed.) Now that doesn’t mean someone is necessarily kicking in your door tomorrow. But anything anyone can read or see creates what lawyers call “probable cause” for law enforcement agencies to get a search warrant or an okie-dokie for a “sneak and peek” visit to your place so you never know they were there and plant info-capture devices on your computer. You do NOT want to create probable cause that lets someone look around your digital world and, then, your real world.
Here’s why privacy is so important in the post 9/11 world.
Why? Because if someone wants to, they can take data on your computer and basically make the Pope look like anything they want him to look like. They get to edit the video tape of your life. (Including all the times you were pissed-off, or depressed, or...who knows). The trick is never to give anyone “probable cause” to have a look-see.
That’s why you want CRYPTOHIPPIE - VPN. In a post 9/11 world, this is the best insurance anyone can buy. And it’s cheap! $275 / year!
Come with a guarantee? Absolutely. Drop the company an email anytime you want to quit. They confirm that it’s YOU asking, and then they will refund any unused portion of your yearly payment. Can’t be any fairer than that.
Plus, as an EW reader, you can have a FREE one-week trial. If you don't like it, don't pay. (A note about the free trial. It’s got a choke on bandwidth. Great for browsing and emails. But it won’t get you twenty minutes into a porno movie download before you’ve used up your free trial.)
The post 9/11 world is a no-nonsense world with governments at the top of their form. EW abhors the use of the internet for anything that can harm someone so don’t try to play games with cryptohippie. But EW supports all means of communication that supports free speech even though free speech is an endangered species because some governments unlawfully use it to harm people.
Cryptohippie VPN is a way for you to protect your freedom and help your friends protect theirs.
It’s the first step to embracing the new rules of a Post 9/11 world. Unless you’re using a profession grade VPN service, you’ve failed the exam.
Note: Cryptohippie.com is a U.S. site used for processing orders. The company itself is located in Panama with servers all over the world. Don’t worry about the U.S. Nexus.
LET'S ALL BE CRYPTOHIPPIES and tell the Big Brother snoopers good-by. Sign up today or at least give the trial period a go.
