A day in the park
VILNIUS - A 2009 survey recognized Vilnius as the greenest capital in Eastern Europe. Furthermore, Vilnius’ air quality is the cleanest among all European capital cities. To achieve this, Vilnius urban planners intentionally skipped many areas during the city’s expansion. Though these are named ‘parks,’ but with limited landscaping, some of them are in fact urban fores...

Cows invade the goatshed
ALUKSNE - With the coming of autumn it is time to start harvesting. The biggest question has been what to do with the bumper crop of apples that I have. Of course, the goats are helping to solve that problem, but on a personal level there are only so many apple pies that I can eat in a week! I’ve made enough apple chutney to see me through the winter, but still I have about one hundred ...

Runners, get set!
Tallinn might be tiny compared to other capitals in Europe and worldwide, but it is still very rich and unique in sights – the Old Town and the city wall with its towers. It is nonetheless difficult to describe all these sights in just a few words – one must see them in person. One way to tour the city is by running through it. Yes, by taking part in this month’s upcoming ma...

Avoiding the poisonous ones
ALUKSNE - I have always lived by a simple rule when it comes to mushrooms: if I don’t buy it in a shop, then I don’t eat it. I’ve heard too many horror stories of people eating tasty-looking offerings and ending up in the hospital. However, I realize that I have been missing out on one of the natural larder’s tasty morsels. Knowing that Latvians are avid mushroom hunte...

It is also possible to find here the only Tropical Butterfly House in the Baltic St...
