Ligo! Ligo! pt II

... before joining the others at the fire.

Sadly, nobody really seemed to know the old Līgo songs - there was some (off-key and off-rhythm) singing going on, but not a lot of līgo! līgo! to join in on. The dancing was limited to a big circle walk/dance when lighting the fire on the big pole (the one guiding the sun to us).

Without any good dancing or singing, and just some beer to warm us, the night was ...

... walked around the fire in two big circles, while chanting/singing traditional Līgo songs. Good thing about these songs is that the refrain is always "līgo! līgo!", and that the verses in between are usually sung once by the die-hards who know the lyrics and then repeated by the chorus.

... see. Most impressive where the cliffs: we saw them in various colors (from white to dark red) and with the sun, the clouds and the reflections of the water they offered beautiful views.
After Riga there were some hills around the Abava river and further in the direction of Liepaja. Not so much pristine nature, therefore lots of small villages and cities.. Outstanding there was Kuldiga. If we ever want to go to live ...
