Wal Mart has arrived!

Well, sort of. The Carsons took us to the new Riga Center. We parked in covered parking--like at home. We walked through the doors of Prima and were blown away. It was large and clean and more like a store back home than anything we've seen. The aisles were wide enough for two shopping carts to pass, side by side. There was the food section and the clothing section, and the gardening section, and the electronic section, etc. etc.

I didn't get a picture of the outside of the very large building called Riga Center, but it does remind us Americans of the Titanic, sinking. It's design is unique and the colors/materials they have used on the outside are definitely not like anything we've seen in America. It's too far away for us to go there by bus, probably, but it was fun to go inside and actually feel like "back home."
