    After their long journey your diplomas and chocolates have arrived!

    Thank you very much for them Julia.

    The diplomas are themselves works of art.

    And of course the Latvian chocolates are delicious. I will strictly ration myself so that they last as long as possible!

      Peter, nice to hear you’ve finally got it! Too long journey of your parcel, more than a month! Inside Europe the delivery takes about 4-7 days…
      So, all prize winners have got their gifts now! Later I’ll post some pictures of this sending. 🙂
