This was our first night in Riga and we were really impressed by the food. The oysters were on special offer and delicious and our dinners were just as tasty. Our waiter was friendly and informative.

Description
”Strong and tough people live in this quiet corner of the earth ” Vilis Lacis says on coastal Latvians.In 1939, a feature film was made after his romana ”Fisherman`s Son” , depicting life in fishing villages, fishermen, their joys and troubles, harsh and full of risk everyday life. One generation inherits tools from the other, working methods and hope to become wealthier and independent.Oscar is a fisherman`s son, who is fighting for these ideals, with a bright mind, strong will and faith in a better tomorrow.
