Latvia is very flat. How flat? The Latvian language never developed a word for "mountain." Interestingly, "Go Tell it on the Mountain" has been playing every day at breakfast in our guesthouse - and they are singing it in Latvian. What are they singing? Go tell it on the big hill?
The above video was shot as it was snowing quite hard. Unfortunately, that's not all that clear with the poor quality. You can get an idea, though, of the northern dirt roads and the desolate, pancake countryside. Also, this is the radio station that we've been listening to the past couple of days.
We woke up this morning to more snow and then a brief glimpse of blue sky.
