The XXV Latvian Song Festival is now over!
Well, the festival is over but we are still in Latvia. Yesterday, we attended the parade of all the song and dance performers. After four and one-half hour and some 1200 photos, we gave up and went for a beer and some eats and watched the top of the parade from a sitting distance. It went for over another hours as thousands upon thousands of participants streamed past, It was totally incredible. And don't worry\, we are only putting up a relatively small sample of our photos on our Picasa site under its own album. By the way, there is also a Festival album and and we keep updating the general Riga album. As a reminder, click here to go to our Picasa site.
