reason why latvia is the bomb #7: battery

beautiful isnt it?

battery is not made in latvia and im pretty sure you can buy it in most european countries... but that doesnt change the fact that i discovered this wonderful beverage in latvia! its the closest substitute that i have found in latvia for the wonderful energy drink "monster." if you ever make it overseas, do yourself a favor and purchase one of these.

reason why latvia is the bomb #6: sniegs!!!

it snowed here the other day... a LOT.

pretty fun. it makes winter worth it.

seeing it in person also brings new meaning to verses like Isaiah 1:18; "Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool."

praise God for that!



reason why latvia is the bomb #5: mandarīni

give it up for winter fruit!!! yahoo.

in a long, dark and cold winter, these little oranges are my "ray of sunshine." they give me hope that one day the sun will return and it will be summer again! haha. besides being a great snack and tasting great, they are also a great source of nutrition. i have been known to eat an entire bag in a matter of minutes without even realizing it! they are delicious!
