The stay at home of Adelaide’s Latvians, Jānis Priedkalns and Ilga [Agnese adds – the others were staying in other places] is nice, especially the breakfast – Latvian style pancakes with Pure [a town in Latvia] jam! Wow! I cannot find the koala in the eucalyptus tree of their house garden, but the green car – fantastic!
The meeting with honorary consul, the leader of Adelaide’s Latvians and others is cozy, lovey, people are interested. Latvians here are very friendly. In the Latvian museum it seems to me that the collection of folk costumes are even bigger than in Latvia Etnographic Open-air museum.
Woomera rocket base is not too interesting for me, but Ilgonis [Agnese adds – definitely also Agnese and Emīls] is excited! Tonight we are staying in rest area 225km before Coober Pedy, tomorrow full speed forward! After dinner Emīls shows and tells about stars – he is very good at it. Sky is full of stars and the Milky Way so beautiful! And them the sleep gradually takes me over and I curl up in the car.
