uzticams

Uzticams is Latvian for reliable. It implies a range of qualities that Latvians like to see as part of a Latvian identity; trustworthy, dependable, loyal.

Uzticams also belies a pessimistic nature and a 'never satisfied' mentality that is part and parcel of striving for a better future.

In Latvia the main singing contest is called the Dainas festival, held every four years. It is a time when temperate Latvian people have no restraints in celebrating freedom, independence and a patriotic spirit that would make a Norwegian blush.

The Latvian tourist authorities promote the country as 'the singing nation'. And guess what? Estonia is a 'singing nation', and so is Lithuania.
