This is my favorite picture of all I got on my vacation, and i took so much more than is shown on this little website. Packing my bag for the last time is so depressing. I am happy to go home, but i just wish the adventure could continue. I am happy that i got this great opportunity.
Latvia has had so much to offer me and is so much fun. yesterday, I went to a fancy restaurant for dinner, and had a 3 course meal all Latvian food. the appetizer, in english, called latvian Bacon Buns, called something totally different in Latvian. than fr the main course I had a salad and beef steak. yum. And for dessert, i had a danish. they serve simple things like sugar cookies and cakes for desserts. and chocolate. LOTS AND LOTS of chocolate. AWESOME. This has been a life changing trip. I love this so much.
Lastly, i want to talk about the festival I visited last. I went to the Latvian Song and Dance Festival. After centuries of foreign rule, this is a way that they celebrate thier Independence and freedom. It's kinda like a country wide talent show, and the peopl there are GOOD. I mean, relly good. i wish i could have stayed there weeks to listen to music like that, even though I didn't understand it!
I can't wait to get home, but i don't want to leave all of this behind. This was the best experience in my life. I hope you all get the chaance to do the same thing I did.
