A Royal Visit

The Latvian President bites her lip.

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands...and her hat.

Since we are kind of on the subject of visits by famous former heads-of-state, we might as well include a current royal one who visited us last spring. It's certainly much easier to get up close to these folks in Latvia compared to the States. I guess Queen Beatrix isn't seen as much of a threat. Tomorrow, Queen Elizabeth is scheduled to visit. I'll bet that one will be a little tougher to approach so closely, but we'll try. She'll be in the same spot as the foto above, laying flowers on the Freedom Monument in Riga.

Do post some pictures of HM, QE2. And you're right. One couldn't get nearly as close to such people in the States.
