I wasn’t really willing to rub shoulders in a crowded puddle, as I then imagined it. However,…

Latvian Sauna Day        There is a lot of motion happening here… It seems that everything has already been tried and yet… it is another country with its own way of doing things, other people and the old and forgotten becomes new. Who would think that a yurt that, eons ago, became a living house could serve as a perfect sauna made of felt.
