On 10 February, Ambassador Kārlis Eihenbaums and his wife Ināra Eihenbauma participated in Ice Block Challenge Winterlude 2019 in the historic ByWard Market in Ottawa.

The EU ice exhibit featured 30 blocks of ice displaying everyday objects emblematic of the EU Member States. These "frozen-in-time" symbols were on show until Sunday, 10 February when everyone was invited to break the ice blocks and dig out the objects for keepsake. Many worked hard for the treasures from Latvia - exclusive Laima handmade chocolate, Riga Golden Sprats - smoked sardines in oil, and famous Riga Black Balsam, made from the 18th century recipe.
