I was having dinner last night in the Quiet Center at this new Asian place when I noticed a gaggle (is it a gaggle?) of young men marching along the sidewalk. The men looked like football fans, heading out to the game in the nearby Skonto stadium. The last in the gaggle were two female municipal police officers and a police van that slowly followed the stream of football fans from Croatia.
A moment later, on the corner of Antonijas and Dzirnavu, this had happened. Quiet Center no more, as a Russian tourist said.
