In mid-October, I had the great chance to travel to Riga and to visit friends from the Latvian New Professionals. During the four days, we got around the beautiful city of Riga, and enjoyed a lot of good food and Latvian beer. Of course, there was time to visit some libraries like the National Library of Latvia, the Riga Central Public Library, and the public library in Koknese.Being in Latvia for my first time, I was very happy to get to see parts of its countryside as well. Besides a long stroll along the beach of Jurmala, the most impressive experience for me was the amazingly beautiful autumn scenery in Koknese. Here you can find more pictures of this trip.
