If It’s Good Enough for the Dalai Lama…….

dali lamaThe lure of Latvia attracts all sorts of people and this week its the Dalai Lama, who arrived in Riga yesterday for a short visit.

The main event is a “Culture of Compassion” talk in Riga Arena (you’re going to have be to quick off the mark if you think you’d like to go – it’s this afternoon!) and everybody who attends is being asked to bring white lilies which will be scattered in the River Dauga after the talk.

Don’t think His Holiness is going to have time to try any Gobananasinriga type activities but he seems to be a jovial kind of character who would probably enjoy a quick shot on a quad or a wild water tube ride through the white lilies!

The Dalai Lama previously visited Latvia in 1991 and 2001.
