Hmm.... More than two months since.... At any rate, a trio of fotos from Riga last week. I like them because they remind me of how "Sovietized" parts of the city still are while the modern state develops in its midst. The top one is the Lido restaurant upstairs in the Spice (spee-tsa) mall near the Imanta neighborhood, with its endless rows of gray flats across the street from their residents' former workplace, the now derilict Radioteknika, shown below. It's easy to pretend that time has stood still, except all around outside of the fotos life briskly continues in the new Latvia.
