You know how sometimes there’s a magic hour at dusk and the light is all golden? Well at this time of year in Latvia golden hour lasts all day. LATVIA IS GORGEOUS. Cēsis, in Northern Latvia, is gorgeous and it smells like the giant national park it is adjacent to: crisp and fresh and maybe mushroomy.
Also, there are lots of cats.
Cēsis does not have sights: it has ambiance.
HOB actually told me he felt relaxed and this dude never is relaxed.
This morning we went to the market in Cēsis to buy some eats for the day.
Is this autumn equinox in the form of produce, or what? It was all tasty.
But here’s the most important thing to know about Latvia: biezpiens. This succulent object comes from the refrigerator case at the grocery store. It is made of a kind of fermented, pressed cheese covered in chocolate. Oh. My. Gods. Of. The. Baltics. This is the best dessert of all time and I do solemnly swear to eat it multiple times a day for a long as I am in Latvia.
