Quote: In the summer of 2004, I had the pleasure of visiting the lovely country of Latvia, particularly a city in the Southern region known as Daugavpils. I was visiting there as an aid to a group of teachers that were taking part in an organization called WIESCO.

The 'White Swan' Prison Photo, Daugavpils, Latvia
One of the best things to do in Daugavpils is just walking around the town, which we did a lot of. There is a prison along a main street in Daugavpils ironically called the White Swan. There you can see the prisoners exchanging notes with each other by swinging small canisters on strings.

Best Way To Get Around:

The best ways to get around are walking and the tram, which goes throughout the city. It's not very expensive and nice when you don't want to walk ALL over the city.
