I don't think it changes anything.
All is that I just wanted to hear some words about Latvians, since there are other places too I can go, and since everyone around me thinks that Latvia is sinking into chaos, it would be good to know if otherwise people are very hospitable, or not really, or easiy to get on well with them or rather reserved people or anything one can add.
Just because there are many other reasons too I am interested in Latvia so I don't want to cancel it so easily, but it is true I have a big interest in other countries too where I applied so, one must add all plus and minus to a decision like that
By the way, a Hungarian girl, who spent a year in Latvia, told me it is like Hungary 10-15 years ago and that poverty can be strongly seen everywhere, except town-centres which are well maintained. Though it just makes me Latvia sympathical
And I can't imagine it is that bad, since even Romania is now like Hungary 10 years ago, and Latvia seems to be better.
Though these things don't interest me much, I just wanted to know if Latvians are kind to foreigners or don't open themselves so easily like Nordic people.
