    We don’t have too many in Southern California, not like in Europe anyway. I used to love to listen and look at swallows zooming by on summer nights, when we can still see a bit of light at 11 pm (in France). When does it get dark in Estonia, or are you so close to the arctic circle that it really doesn’t get that dark in summer?
