No, no black women in Latvia
As you all might know, I visit a friends who lives in Riga - capital of Latvia. This is the former Soviet Union. To the east of Sweden. The so-called Eastern Europe. I had hear lots of stuff about this country before my little trip there. No black citizen what so ever. And I must confess, I was in a little "shock" when I realized that this fact was almost 100% true. During my stay for like 5 days, I (listen know) saw 4 black people in the capital city of Latvia. FOUR. And listen to this. One was some jazz singer on a poster (yes, on a poster). And one was a black women (by the way, very beautiful :)) working at the cabin crew on the flight taking me back home. So that makes it 2 black people in 5 days. A woman and her child. I cant believe it. Riga is far far far the most homogene country I every visit. And Latvia is only like one hour away from Sweden. Crazy, crazy.
Guess I was kinda glad getting back home to Sweden. I realized "whoooa, there are a lot of beautiful black women in Sweden" :) I mean, in Sweden I would, if Im now comparing it to Latvia, see at least 500-1000 black people a day.
So, my advice, don't go to Latvia or the Eastern Europe! :D Come to Sweden instead!!! LOL
