Back our 3-year anniversary trip to Riga, Latvia, via Stockholm, Sweden. Great trip, great weather, great food, people!

It was a nice surprise to be in Riga for the 20th anniversary of the Baltic Chain, a protest where 2 million people held hands over 600 kilometers (373 miles) spanning three countries (Estonian SSR, Latvian SSR, and Lithuanian SSR). Imagine that! I had know idea.

By the way, while we’re on the topic of protests and before I forget, here’s Larry Flint’s (yes, that Larry Flint) call for mass protest on HuffPo: “Common Sense 2009.”  What will cause the sheeple to reject the lies, reject their selfishness (and the selfishness of the politicians and mega corporations), and standup for each other (“we, not me”)?  Apparently a lot, since it’s not happened yet.  Sigh.  Now back to regularly scheduled blog post.

More about the Baltic Chain and its 20th anniversary:

Now on to the pictures, organized into three groups:

  1. Stockholm (pics from before and after Riga)
  2. Boat to and from Riga
  3. Riga

  1. Thanks, DJ. Good to hear from you. I see you got a new phone number? I need to get it into into my contacts list, can you email it to me? Also, I see you recently got back from a trip… hope it was great! Hope to see you soon and catch up on the various things we’ve been up to since last time. Cheers, Chris

  2. Wow! Some familiar views of Riga 🙂

    Occupation Museum would bring some contrasts to the brighter side of Riga. The museum is located almost in the center of old town.
