Postcard from Latvia
Last week we attended a conference near Riga, Latvia. Here are some of the interesting sites we saw.
Many of the old buildings had distinctive shapes to them and, surprisingly, many windows. I figured that the cold winters would require architects to minimize the windows.
Modern buildings were uniquely built also, in a very boxy style.

Our conference was in the resort town of Jumala on the Baltic Sea. The beach-side resort building was old and a bit dilapidated, but from this distance it is very picturesque.
