And again I must say that finally I'll write something here. Just two days of lectures in a week don't mean that I have much free time - I still have to write 10 pages about lichens or mosses (I already watched best moments of five last F1 seasons races while writing, and there's still so much to do), and many other homeworks. At least it's interesting to do them :) Anyway, main idea of this post was to tell you about Roja, where I try to spend at least few days of my summer every year, as my best friend's grandma has a house there.

These are photos from this year. But the main thing here is a story, why it's such a great place ^^ In short, Roja is a small city (I call it a village, but people living there don't like this name :D), which was first mentioned in documents in 1387. It's located at the coast of Gulf of Riga, where Roja river flows. There is also a port, and it's 7th biggest port in Latvia.
First of all, Roja is feeling of freedom. Because of the sea, of course. Because of the wind, waves and other things.

Roja is Sea Festival - held every year at second Saturday of July. There you can see Neptune, attend some concerts, have fun and see fireworks above the sea ^^
Roja is the city of roses :) Our house is near the school of music, and many beautiful roses grow there. Also many of them are at the main square of Roja.

Roja is the city of fireflies and night life (not because of parties and nightclubs!). Where else you can walk in the forest at 4 a.m. and collect them? ^^ Or where else you can go to a graveyard exactly at 12 a.m.?

Anyway, one more thing I promised to show you - video from Brainstorm concert, where they sing `Bronze` and our Olympics Champion Māris Štrombergs is there ^^
By the way, I achieved one of this years goals - to drive 1000 km with my bike :) So far I drove 1015 km ^^
And that's all for today, I guess. Hope soon I will write another post about our awesome excursions at lectures and about a little trip to Daugavgrīva fortress last weekend.
Have a nice evening! ^^
