Since I've had so many heavy real estate/economy posts recently... here is something less serious:
This is a 36kg chocolate bear, produced by Laima, the main Latvian chocolate producer.
The story behind it started last April when a brown bear swam on a piece of ice from Latvia to the Estonian island of Ruhnu, 37km away from Latvia. The bear was on the island for 4 months and it managed to avoid multiple attempts to catch it, until disappearing (swimming back to Latvia?) in August.
One year later, Laima produced the chocolate bear and gave it as a gift to the people living on the Ruhnu island. They have not eaten it yet... instead, they arranged for an artist to produce a plaster copy of the chocolate bear, for a permanent display on the island. When the plaster copy is ready in mid-September, they will finally eat the chocolate bear.
