Home Alone with Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš
Latvian Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš had to spend two weeks in self-quarantine at the start of the coronavirus crisis, and has since been leading a government remotely from a home office in times of social distancing.

On becoming a Latvian citizen: Part 2 - Documentation
Having decided to apply for Latvian citizenship, my next step was to do very little for a couple of years.
