Somehow in the rainy afternoon went we to small town Balozhi (in translation - Pigeons, pronunciation appr. Bullwazhee) near Riga - simply to look. It is located 12 km from the center of Riga to the south, has been constructed in 1947. for development of peat. For what operators of a shovel from villages around Pskov and Vitebsk have been delivered, that has defined national structure of settlemen, and also the further unpopulationing the marked territories. Now ethnic Latvians are approximately half of population of small town from 4,5 thousands. The rights of city with 1991., to it the settlement Titurga on road Via Baltica (1 km to the east of the center) is attached. Towards we have not gone, for though the Baltic climate Someone has obviously cured from an asthma, but rheumatism rainy day to local population adds. Up to Balozi conducts a route of the Riga city bus as those are separated from Riga only by pair km of a wood.

The last sabbath I started not as a humanoid, i.e. at a session of committeeadministration, but continued as a homo sapiens - with a boardhockey at children's festival. Tables we brought in little amount, for a formal presence. Took photos, here they are.

Many photos, *666Collapse )

In the programm "search the new territories" we made a bus hook through Ogre district (Ogre is a town 37 km from Riga), visiting villages Keipene and Suntazi - both about thousand of people, situated not totally in the asshole and not at great roads (railroad Riga - Ergli working with 1 train at day, way in the same direction is not asphalted). Nothing noticeable and therefore they can be an example of average Latvian village. The start - in Ogre. About 50 photos, max width 666 pixels, much landscapes from bus windowCollapse )

I was passing by a monument of Barclay de Tolli at 18:15 - like there Russian-speaking extremists arranged the "Russian march". The ears fade until this time. That there saw:
Fifty marginalies, listen to any nazi,
One hundred cops from different services,
And - yes will pardon us Cthulhu - three hundred mad shouting baboons in green wigs. North-Ireland football fans. On their background ours seem an embodiment of manners and intelligence. And together with this anxious crowd sticking to everything that moves on foots irrespective of amount of foots, I has passed pair quarters. Especially to take photos did not risk, the crowd was too drunk.
And can, while Latvians sit in Ireland South mostly, to send Russianmarching to Ireland North? Who whom not win, one madmen would become less.
As I live in one quarter from stadium, fans of everyones has seen enough, but NIRers were worst of looked.
