Three sisters in front of Three Brothers
These are three medieval residences built in the 15th, 16th & 17th centuries.

Church of the Suffering Virgin
We had many names for this church. I liked Church of the Hysterical Virgin.
This is where Mom and Zita were baptized.
Norm, Sandra, Aina and Dad at Lido's
This is one the great cafeteria style Latvian restaurants opening up all
over town. I had potato pancakes, sausages and the house beer.
For those who don't know, Aina is a childhood friend
of Mom's and Sandra is
her daughter. Aina is a schoolteacher and Sandra is a judge. Sandra was very
instrumental in the reclaiming of Opapu's land ("Snickersville").
