Gundega’s husband Arnolds was a furniture restorer. After his death, Gundega carried his tools and the things from his workshop up to the attic. Now she wants to sort them out. She takes a broom and a bucket of water and climbs up to the attic. She starts to clean the attic.

In the attic she finds an elegant chair. Unfortunately, it’s torn and damaged and one of the chair’s legs has been scratched. Gundega has an idea! She carries the chair down from the attic to the room below and opens her laptop. She looks for a furniture restorer. One website looks very professional, so she makes a call.

  • Hello, Viktor speaking!
  • Hello! My name is Gundega. I found an old chair in the attic, and I would like it to be restored. Could you tell me how much that would cost?
  • To start with, I’d like to see the chair. When would you be able to bring it to us?
  • Anytime! Just tell me when is most convenient for you.
  • Please come on Wednesday then.
  • OK, I’ll be there! Please could you tell me the address?
  • Kumelīšu Str…
  • I’m sorry, but where is Kumelīšu Street? This is the first time I’ve heard of it.

Gundega is surprised. She’s lived in Riga all her life but doesn’t know that street.

  • How can I get there from Teika by public transport?

Viktor laughs.

  • Gundega, we are based in Daugavpils.
  • Oh, Daugavpils? Well, how extraordinary! I’ve never been there. Please tell me the full address and I’ll be there on Wednesday!
