I know a couple of Latvians on facebook, both through my lady and also through my previous and current studies. I can’t remember how exactly I found this little facebook app, which is an interactive infographic about Latvian anatomy, but it’s both entertaining and takes on troublesome issues with a light and positive attitude.

An example of a difficult topic that is difficult for many Latvians is Russia and some cultural conflicts between Russians and Latvians in Latvia, since they form a minority of ~27%. (source)

Today, Russian language and culture plays such a significant role in the social, economic, and domestic aspects of our everyday life that we can now say, Yes, sometimes we do have a difficult relationship with Russians, but they are still a part of us.

I wrote the facebook page, where it is published, If you like Latvia, Latvia likes you and as it turns out, it is run by the Latvian Institute.
