Good capture of the street surface, Ainars! I wouldn't want to ride a bicycle on it (if I were still riding a bicycle). Also a nicely composed picture. Cheers, Marilyn

Never know before about somewherelseplaces named "Meteora". :D Second link is showing great place too, with cozy "fachwerk style" houses and narrow streets where neighbors know each other.

In Latvian "Meteors" come from word "Meteorite" but if used to street names then has nothing in common with astronomy. This word was just one from "modern peoples" lexicon and was wide used a long time before terms "perestroyka", "communism", "revolution" was ever known and ever pronounced! :DD

Near this street (in my photo) some 100 years ago existed India-rubber plant "Meteors" and many plant workers lived in this houses.
