Pērses iela

I love those moments when I stumble upon some previously unseen building or corner in Riga's centre which I seemingly know like my right hand's five fingers. Today I discovered several beautiful and strange buildings at the same time - in small sidestreet Pērses street. I have been on this street before, but due to some job affairs, so back then I didn't even paid attention to what was above my eye level. Now I think - how many people lives in Riga like that, running through the centre every day but never look up? They even don't know how Riga's architecture looks like, they have never seen the city where they live! And then they every summer vacations pays large money to travel to Paris or London to wonder about buildings there... Don't get me wrong, traveling is beautiful (I do it myself everytime I can afford) but - it's stupid to travel and appreciate faraway places if you haven't even noticed wonders in your everyday's surroundings.
