The U. S. Embassy

We walked to the U. S. Embassy (in the event of an emergency, that's where we are to go and so we thought we better know how to get there.
It's across from a large park, just outside of Olde Towne. It's much more protected than the other embassies. It was great to see the United States flag waving in the breeze. It's beautiful and I am so thankful to be an American.
I have always loved weeping willows, and was so pleased to see one across from the Embassy. I also love sculptures and thought this one was great! I'm told you can't walk on the lawns, so I couldn't get close enough to really see it and enjoy it. Perhaps you can enlarge it and see it better than I did.
Riga is so much prettier in the Spring than in the Winter.
