Well the YouTube ended and I didn't research the Latvia news for the rest of the story! Who wants to do that?

Too droll WG Admin!

I went to grad school with a woman from Latvia. She gave me a bottle of Black Balsam, looked like tar and tasted like cough syrup, with lots of herbals mixed in. At first sip it woke you up, then put you to sleep. I've tasted nothing like it before or since!

My biochemistry teacher was from Latvia.
When he told me that he smiled and told me- cause he knew I would not know.

If you look at Europe - over next to Russia's eastern border and go way up North of Poland - across the sea to Sweden - right under Finland to where there is a this land mass that shoots out into the Baltic Sea -- there are three little countries right in together that was taken over by Russia. the middle country is Lativa.
My biochemistry teacher by the way was my third most favorite teacher - right after my second grade teacher (my mother) and my fifth grade teacher (who let me draw and paint a lot).

He cared a lot about his students, and the environment.

He escaped Lativa some how but left his mother behind. He said a storm came through and knocked everyone's doors in. Russia would not let them replace them. Russia had it all set up that Russian workers would make them and install them for the people.

Five years later My biochemistry teacher said - my mother still does not doors on her house from the storm.

He was always funny- telling stories like that.

That is Lativa!
So I guess it is a cave system going out into the Baltic Seal and not in a dish pan somewhere.
