It’s always nice to feel that you’re welcomed home. On Sunday I visited my family in Ādaži (25 km from Riga) and also we tried to see the seaside of Skulte (40 km from Ādaži), but unfortunately this idea was doomed. Our car got stacked in mud just shortly before we reached the destination.

Luckily a tractor driver helped us to get out of mud. But the car got damaged, so we needed to return. At least I managed to get one shot of the seaside.

The evening ended really nice – I met my friend, we had a talk and also a movie night.

Today I managed to print a poster for the 10th Congress of Latvian Librarians. Some complications encountered me concerned with file formats, but luckily now everything is OK.

This day was really interesting because my colleague of the Riga City Library and I had an opportunity to show our city to a special guest from United States. Not every day there is a chance to have a talk with a member of the American Library Association. So we guided a 3-hour Old City tour, including a tour to a really famous street of Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) architecture – Alberta Street.

And of course a perfect ending of the day followed – a meeting with my friends. Tomorrow is the first day of congress. Hope it’s going to be exciting.
