Photographs (2).

Are photographs somehow cheating? Am I not really writing about my trip? I don’t know. Here is the Orthodox cathedral that I look at as I eat breakfast in the morning.

That, followed by a different kind of cathedral — the shopping kind of cathedral — but one which apparently still praises the same God?

And then the Brivibas Piemineklis — the Freedom Monument — on a sunny day in Riga. And the old woman whose job it is to sweep the snow from the monument’s steps — in preparation for this, a Latvian day of mourning for the victims of Stalin’s deportations.
