First of all, sorry for my english, it's not a perfect one.

My name is Gianfranco, i'm from Lima, Peru. I work as a journalist, I always been curious about new cultures (the so called "culture shock") and overseas experiences. Anyway, i'm making some plans for next year and i'm very interesting in travelling to Riga, Latvia because, even if it sounds odd, I know so little about this country that I need to go a discover. I've been searching on the internet some things and I realize it's a place I'd should visit.

Nevertheless, it's not an easy thing to do. I don't know yet if a require a visa or how much do I need to stay there some time, I don't even know if I can make it just with my spanglish in a country where everybody speaks russian and latvian (┬┐am I right?). Actually, I was planning to go there and study russian for a while.

I'd like to know how much is the cost of living in Latvia: how much do you earn in a minimun wage, how easy is to get a job for spanish/english speakers, how much would it cost to rent a flat, study russian, having some fun, etc etc. I'm just need the basic to be fine, I mean, cheap places. My main interest is to write some stories about it, to get some knowledge about this distant culture and, of course, get to know some interesting people.

After all, who knows, some Latvians could be interesting in coming to Peru.

Big hugs from here.

Hey man!

gianfranch:
where everybody speaks russian and latvian

I'm not sure Latvia is the best place for it, specially as we've had the referendum about Russian as the 2nd official in Latvia, and it failed. 75% of voters were against; but that's mostly because of the current Latvian national politics. Not everyone living in Latvia has rights to vote; about 30% do not have it. Mostly those 30% are Russian-speaking persons.

You can surely to come to Latvia to study Latvian and Russian; but truly, it you want to study Russian only, you may better visit Russia

gianfranch:

It depends on how much you need, and how much spend currently. I think you can survive in Latvia for about EUR 500.

gianfranch:
how much do you earn in a minimun wage

It's about EUR 280.

gianfranch:
how easy is to get a job for spanish/english speakers

I think it's not easy. I know English well and so far my Latvian girlfriend earns for both of us But may be it's just because I don't require too much... who knows

gianfranch:
how much would it cost to rent a flat

Plan at least about EUR 200 for that.

gianfranch:
having some fun

Oh yes. There will be lots of fun, specially if you are coming from the other continent. It could be all new for you. I've arrived here from Belgium and sometimes I'm back to my land; but for the first time, I was truly impressed by Riga, the capital of Latvia. It has a spirit.

gianfranch:

I know few of them. Me, too

Sometimes I also write stories. Not only on this forum, but on this forum, you can click on my profile and read my posts. I think the most astonishing experience I've gained from GoBlonde after-party. Marika wrote to the forums boss I'm desperate after that

When you are in Riga, let's have a beer or coffee - despite I'm not a girl, we have few chances to co-operate together [oh well I know my girlmate now will beat me ]
