A local resident explores abandoned houses in rural Latvia

Abandoned World is an interesting YouTube channel, where a local resident goes on expeditions to abandoned houses, including to his own great-grandmother’s house, in rural Latvia. This is an example of how abandonment and emptiness are observed and represented by those who live in it or live nearby to it.
