Hi!

I live in Latvia since August 2002, so I can say that I managed to adjust by now.

Still, there are things that foreigners need to keep in mind while here:
1. Weather - is rather cold with very long winters and high humidity. Very tough for people with rheumatic or other inflamatory joint problems, for example.

2. Latvians are sensittive to topics related to their relationship with their Easter neighbour, Russia.

I will get back when I will remember more :)

Good luck!

Smiles,

Crista
