livin latvia loca

my friends,

i’ve returned from riga where i was for a festival. what were we celebrating? life of course!

did you know that during the soviet era there was a ban on flowers? i didn’t.

but now i do. and i’m telling you: it’s customary to bring flowers to a lavtian person’s home when you visit… but be sure to bring an odd number! even numbers are for funerals.
