[Listen to Latvian National Anthem]
After three days in Tallinn, I arrived at the Latvian border with Ulo the driver. The border guard asked for my passport, and I had to capture the moment with my camera. She wasn't happy, and yelled at Ulo in Russian, who translated, "You are not supposed to do that!" I smiled at the guard, said "Paldies!" (thank you in Latvian) and we continued to Rīga.

After an incredible three-day stay in that city, which included finding invaluable ties to my family's past, my journey concluded in Vilnius.
