I`m looking around… and what do I see? Em... Shoes from NIKE, a PRADA dress, a D&G watch, newest CHRYSLER cars … Almost everything we use nowadays was made abroad (globalization!) and I can`t live without some of these material things. It makes me feel European.
But at the same time… a voice in my heart says, "You should feel Latvian". I speak Latvian. Latvia is the only place in the whole world where you can hear the Latvian language. I observe Latvian traditions and at festivals I wear a Latvian national costume. I sing Latvian folk songs and dance national dances. These activities connect me with rich and powerful Latvian culture. I suppose culture is the main thing that makes a nation feel united. And I’m proud to be Latvian.
