Milda in Madona (66/100)

The staff photographer has not done a good job of getting out and about these last weekends, so this is an oldie-but-okay-ie. This is in Madona (no relation to Ms. Ciccone), a modest town in Latvia's near east. It's kind of fun that even in a town of about 10,000 souls in Latvia, they can still have public art of sorts. I mean, it's not amazing or anything, but it's something, and I don't recall seeing anything similar in Windsor, Colorado last time I was there. Well, except for the nearby Swetsville Zoo. (R.I.P. apparently. "Town officials ask fans not to blame the new Wal-Mart across the road." Screw you, Wal-Mart. (Sorry, Northern Colorado aside ends here. Back to Latvia tomorrow!))

Oh noes! Not the Swetsville Zoo! Thankfully the town is relocating some of the sculptures to other public spaces, but that really is kind of heartbreaking.

I thought "Windsor" was simply a fancy name for part of Greeley. If they get a Wal-Mart that'll really put them on the map!

I drove past the Swetsville Zoo today, on the new & improved Harmony Road going east from I25. There are still a LOT of sculptures on site. Who knows what the future holds?
