Farming Tourism In Riga

P.S.: If someone is interested, I can arrange (a small administration fee will be charged) a weekend (full boarding) at the “farm” where you will be able to release stress and breath fresh air into polluted lungs of yours.

Can you imagine playing "Scrabble" while having glass after glass of that wonderful Aqua Vitae? :D
Enjoy (at least as I did),
P.S.: A short lesson in Ukrainian culture:
