Latvia

My brother and I 
This is the beautiful Riga, the capital city of Latvia. My mom, dad, brother, and I recently flew to Latvia then traveled by bus and train through Lithuania, where my brother lived for a couple years while serving a mission for our church. Latvia, as you can see, was really beautiful, and the people were extremely friendly. I joke I joke, the majority were not very friendly—just a cultural difference. I was going to ask my brother how to say “Hello” in Latvian, but after a few minutes and a few cold expressions from the local passersby I decided I would have no need.

We ate dinner in an authentic, candlelit wine cellar from the 13th century. The food, dress and decor took you way back. It was a really great time, especially after we realized our apple juice was really wine ha ha.
