Of Latgale

We made two separate expeditions to the Eastern stretches of Latvia over the last week. The first was related to the day job, visiting Daugavpils (pop. ~100,000), Kraslava (pop. ~10,000), and Dagda (pop. ~2,000). I don't think Dagda gets a lot of diplomatic visitors. I talked to the students at the high school about America, they asked questions about whether we're really as violent and fat as is rumored. (Answers: "No," and "We're working on it, ok?")
