In this personal short essay, the author chronicles her trip to Riga, capital of Latvia, a journey she undertakes in an effort to track the mysterious past of her much-maligned father. She discovers that Riga, the Baltic States’ largest city rocks on with clubs, casinos and ever-present erotica. Also cultural fests with the National Opera, Ballet and Symphony. She also visits a synagogue, and learns much about her father's ultra-religious roots and life in cold, snowy Riga. ."Oh Daddy I miss you. I only wish I could have told you how much when we were together. Why did you have to leave Africa when I was 10? Why did you go to America?"
