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 first, that we have seen at a bus circle, was latticed a building of police. The police is located on western to the end of Pigeons, at the main street - branches of highway Via Baltica.
Small houses on road to the center.
The sidewalk obviously was not updated years 30 - however, hardly who, except for cops, on them these years and stamped.
Local macaroni factory.
Hulture Couse. (A municipal Culture house, of curse.)
Children's isolator :)
Actually, now in Balozi there is a resolute construction - though also near at a bog, but however is close to Riga. I suspect, soon constructions begins less for the prices on flats have obviously reached the peak and to grow more do not wish, unlike inflation.
Sheathing the house, obviously money has not sufficed - here and there is it wadding warming naked. I represent, as it in couple of years will appear.
But as a whole, anything so. If not near Riga - there would be a four with a minus, and so - a firm three.
Stalinstroy collapsing, some pieces.
