Hey from Riga, Latvia

Tomorrow is my grandfather's 101st birthday, and also the opening of his museum show out here, right down the street from the house he grew up in in Riga's Old city. I wish I could upload some of the pix I've been shooting in Gypsy graveyards, cellar bars, and soviet era block house ghettos...But it will have to wait till maybe when I'm in Tokyo at the end of this week and can upload some photos. It's so very cold here, and the sun sets late, and I have the only beard in sight, which keeps my face warm but elicits lots of giggles, and comments like "Borat!" and "....bin ladden...."
I've been meeting some very friendly and warm people here, and am sad to leave after only a few days...
