Deutsche Welle:

We visited Latvia once before more than a decade ago. Now we’ve returned to the tiny republic in north-eastern Europe, met the people we talked to before and asked them how they’ve been getting along.

We talk to the manager of a brick factory in Cēsis, a worker on an organic farm in Renda, and a former student who has since found a job in Kuldīga.

They are many voices in one small country.

    Latvia isn’t tiny. Consult a map next time you go.
