What started as a slow, relaxing beach day, turned into a mad dash through a torrential downpour to an uncertain destination along sand roads. I totally misjudged, but landed on my feet.

After 16 days of cycling onward, always onward, today I stopped. I ate. I slept. I did some internet, and I lay on the banks of the river.

The first feelings of endless forests. Wide roads, and a jump in the distances. Everything is further apart, which I experienced in the bright, hot sun of the Latvian midsummer. Midsummer night is a latvian night of celebration with bonfires, drinking and frivolities.
