Da Bo Latvia - Fare Thee Well

On my last full day in Latvia I paid a visit to the Museum of the Occupation (by Nazi German and Soviet forces). It was an interesting, depressing and sobering experience to contemplate man's inhumanity to man. Yet through all the trials and tribulations, the sufferings and the agony, the spirit of survival shines through, and the persistent urge towards freedom from domination and repression cannot be quenched. All things pass, and this too will pass.

It will have changed quite a bit since I was there in 1993. I still can't get over the fact that 9 out of 10 girls in Riga looked like top notch models, one of the various things that made the place surreal back then.
