"Sveiki (that's hi) from Latvia! :)" NilsTheFreelancer's Profile

Who I am

The young man who is mad about 1) knowing other countries, 2) rugby (favourite teams - New Zealand, France, Argentina, Wales, Fiji, Samoa, South Africa), 3) beer (it is an evidence that God indeed loves us and wants that we feel great); 4) music (the Doors and more or less alternative music (no blunt commercial music, please) especially); 5) movies (and that means not just Hollywood blockbusters); 6) computer games (I admit - I'm uncurably addict - especially the likes of strategy (Civilization series, Stronghold Crusader, etc.), action (Max Payne, Hitman, GTA series etc.), adventure (Freelancer etc.)); 7) Go (I'm about 10 kyu now) and chess (quite strong). Maybe I forgot to mention something (sure, I did). :)


Latvian (native), Russian (fluent), English (reasonably good but far from perfect), German (quite mediocre), French, Italian, Norwegian, Arabic (very, very basic indeed). I can more or less understand other Slavic, Romance or German languages when words have any similarities to languages I know.

    I would like to learn to play Go. I didn't know they played it in Latvia! The only place I've seen it around is in San Francisco's Chinatown, but my Mandarin is rusty :)
