The King of Pop

We were somewhat surprised to find that the good people of Latvia, or at least those more dedicated to the pop hits of the 1980's, had chose the U.S. Embassy here as the place to create a small shrine in memory of Michael Jackson. They left pictures and flowers and hand-written notes. The staff photographer wasn't available until some of it was already cleaned up by the Embassy's efficient grounds staff. It does make us wonder what the Latvians remember of Thriller, back in the late days of the Soviet era.
