it's probably the reason all these boys got crushes

Hi. Ok. look closely at the man on the right. Yeah? See him? Ok now watch this.

Maris was one of my English students. If you look closely at the board behind my head, you'll see "lay out" written in chalk. Maris had asked to learn the different phrases for "get a tan." The next week he brought me an autographed copy of his book. He told me to translate it into English and together we would "make millions." I laughed then, but I now I think it could very well be a viable career option.

Seriously, though, when I saw this it was such a strange feeling. Liepaja was my home, and Maris was one of my people. I don't really miss being a missionary very often, but I miss Liepaja.


  1. oh my gosh! That's incredible! That made me miss latvia too. I know those streets...

  2. That's fantastic-- My econ professor is in Latvia this week consulting with the government on how to save their failing economy. Maybe the yummy blonde boy can travel the world and earn them millions--


Don't be shy.
