... of my 23 year old life. I treated myself to smoked Camembert cheese with raspberries, oven roasted leg of lamb, and an extra large Latvian local lager. Inhaling it all in less than 10 minutes was the second easiest mission of my 23 year old life. After dinner, I stopped at Kuuka Kafe for a cappuccino and to catch up on my journal.
