RIGA - Anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock the last few months will know Riga is the European Capital of Culture, 2014. Accordingly, on Sunday morning I decided to take a stroll into Old Town to soak up some aforementioned culture. It helped I was woken up by three generations of Latvians screeching at each other on the stone staircase outside my apartment door, though they were so loud they could have been in the bed with me. At least it gave me a nice early start to the day. With little of cultural significance taking place in Old Town itself - unless you count a golden...  Full story...

Ambiguous prenatal care in the E.U.
Berlin - Somewhere in my twenties, while flipping through a fashion magazine, I saw a tall, thin and very radiant model holding a newborn baby. Her eyes were filled with tears of joy; her skin simply glowing with pride. It was an article about how to deal with pregnancy. I must admit that the photos were so overpoweringly expressive, I felt it was unnecessary to indulge in the written nuances. ...

Death, life, and goat’s milk
ALUKSNE - This past month has seen some highs and a low at the farm. I had to say a tearful goodbye to my faithful canine friend, Barney. His chest infection worsened - despite treatment - and I had to decide it was best to end his suffering. On March, 8, I sat with him while the vet put him to sleep. We had been together for a little over four years. It will take a long time to overcome the em...

“Chords of the Soul” opens Baltic Ballet Festival
RIGA - Spring in Riga means dance, so ballet lovers will be busily swanning and swooning around over the next month, as Riga stages the 19th International Baltic Ballet Festival at a selection of venues around the capital and outside. In its 19th year, the International Baltic Ballet Festival (IBBF) will thrill once again with a wide variety of dance and other artistically-related events from A...

Klaipeda’s rich tapestry
RIGA - Forming a picture of this part of the world – the lands surrounding the Baltic Sea – can be done from many different perspectives: be it history, economic, politics, the environment. Looking through the eyes of a philosopher, though, may be the most revealing, and one that ties it all together. Leonidas Donskis, the European parliamentarian, deep thinker, writer and, ultima...

Welcome home, my friend!
ALUKSNE - I met Barney on Dec. 29, 2009. It was a typical Latvian winter’s night, the temperature had dropped to -16 centigrade. I pulled into a petrol station and noticed a dog sitting by the door, looking a little forlorn. It turned out he had been dumped there earlier in the afternoon and hadn’t moved. The cashier had fed him some pizza and he’d just sat there, waiting fo...

Japanese drumming: Kodo in Tallinn
TALLINN - It’s almost as if the space between man and drum disappears and a fusion of the two entities opens up another realm. There is nothing tangible created, but there is a palpable life force, and everyone who shares that space is somehow transformed. Kodo strives to both preserve and re-interpret traditional Japanese performing arts. Exploring the limitless possibilities of the ...
