194 Lielirbes iela and Kārļa Ulmaņa gatve 27.04.2010

These are the names of two main streets that I walked on.

My dear friend is sick, but somebody takes care of him.

Belgrade has probably the most superb examples of this style. And there are some in Vienna.

Lots of nice new architecture in this area.

These two are certainly my favourites.

Pretty high electric mast.

Continuing my walk after architectural beauties of different kind. Try to guess where I was heading to.

Amazing! How nice! I have no idea about the third one, is it finished, the same, or taken down.

Nice comparison, new and old.

Such a cool look! You can see into metal depths through the blue air...

193 Āgenskalns 27.04.2010

This was my last day in Rïga this year and I left Āgenskalns, hopefully not forever :) It is a nice and little bit older area "over the river".

Last look at my favourite heap.

Superb architecture from soviet time.

I laughed at this :) "Pakāpieni"! In Estonian, that is "Päkapikk", which can be very funny for Latvians, I don't know. It means dwarf, friend of children, who will bring a candy into their scuff or sock in December, when this is put on the window. Well, they put candies for me, I can remember that and very clearly. So here you can meet three such, which makes three candies. Perhaps even three different candies.

I was and still am impressed by the cleanness! Wow! That is just awesome. Respect! That is how things have to be. Although, there are places like that completely different, having different aura and are enjoyable in other ways.

This is a very nice look.
