Czech president's visit



President of Czech republic Vaclav Klaus has arrived in Riga today. And again, traffic on several major streets are blocked. I have never understand why common people have to suffer in these cases, I'm annoyed also every time when I see some important person driving through the city with 90km/h escorted by police with signal lights and sound signals. Let them drive as everyone else, "enjoying" the city's infrastructure as it is.
When George W. Bush arrived in Riga in 2005, the security was turned into absurd - the city centre was closed, a holiday given to people, people were even urged by officials to leave the city to countryside in that day. In the result, the city became absolutely "dead". If you're interested how Riga looked that day, here is picture gallery: http://www.apollo.lv/portal/news/articles/47060/galery/1/article
