Street corner colour – Riga, Latvia
Thought for the day…”About the time that we can make ends meet, somebody moves the ends”.
A bit of street life in the Latvian capital city of Riga for the photo today….and not much action judging by the photo. About 640 000 people live in the this city, or about 1/3 of the entire population of Lativa. Temperatures in the city in winter can fall to -20 or -25 degrees. It became independent from the Soviet Union in 1991, and interestingly, after independence around 290 000 people (about 14% today) were left with no citizenship of any country. Latvia is also home to Europe’s widest waterfall, the 110m wide Ventas Rumba Falls. Apparently, the studs on jeans were invented in Latvia, when the Latvian Jacob Davis joined with Levi Strauss.
and another photo from the archives..the waterfalls at Iguazu, Brail…..
