Where's the vid? I can't find it, unfortunately.
I was in Latvia a while ago, too. And, I have to confess, it was really surprising that such a small country is so well-heeled in terms of the economy. Just consider this: the Latvian currency's rate against the Euro (or USD, for that matter,) is staggeringly high. Frankly, I wouldn't expect that of a post-Soviet country!

Fine, don't forget though that the Dutch will never surpass Americans in terms of cultural impact over the world. And sometimes this is way more important, as you can go literally to every spot under the Sun and speak your mother tongue. I won't be so sure that the Dutch could enjoy that as well.
