Photographer's Note

i read the news today that archaeologists have discovered a Viking boat grave in the Scottish Highlands. The grave contained the remains of a warrior with his axe, sword and a spear. The find is thought to be more than 1,000 years old. What has that to do with this photo ? Well..vikings were here also, made business and sailed further on river Daugava to other destinations. Many of them stayed probably in Riga and became Latvian citizens.

I have been to Latvia several times but this was my coldest visit. Jeans, T-shirt and a thin jacket is not a good idea when it is 15C below zero !
