Back from Michigan

The Treo blogging from Three Rivers, Michigan didn't work out too well. Although the cell phone portion of my smartphone worked, I couldn't access the Internet from the device.

As I noted last week, I traveled to Michigan for the Latvian mid-summer festival known as Ligo. June 23, Ligo day, is a national holiday in Latvia. June 24 is St. John's Day in much of the world, Latvians shorten that to "Jani," or John.

In Latvian folklore, Jani is shown wearing an oak-leaf laurel, such as the one I'm wearing in a photograph taken yesterday afternoon, on Jani.
