IVARS KRUTAINIS IN RIGA KALNCIEMA KVARTĀLS

It seems that Latvians recently have become avid travelers. Maybe they try to catch up with things they could not do 20 years ago when Latvia was incorporated in the USSR. Today I visited exhibition by Ivars Krutainis at the Kalnciema kvartāls in Riga. Ivars had set himself a goal to see 100 countries till the age of 30. Recently he has fulfilled the goal and launched an exhibition afterwards to delight his sedentary compatriots with photographies he has taken in these countries. You can see some of them there:

Of course he has been in Bolivia too.

Also Kalnciema kvartāls is a place for you to visit on your stay to Latvia. Here is what they say about themselves:

Kalnciema Quarter in Riga is part of unique European wooden architecture heritage. The Quarter now hosts series of cultural and business events.

DESCRIPTION

SEASONAL MARKETS, LIVE MUSIC AND GREAT ENTERTAINMENT – KALNCIEMA QUARTER

To add colour and suburban flavour to your afternoons in Riga, visit Kalnciema Quarter – the ensemble of renovated wooden buildings which harbours the history from the end of the 19th century.

What is hidden from the eye of the beholder who passes by, reveals itself here – a courtyard with a secret restaurant, small orchard, a glass of wine, a good conversation
and at times – live music.
