Haralds Ploks today

Kārlis Ploks, 2009

After the journey on the Biscaya, Kārlis Ploks’ son Haralds settled down in Brazil. Haralds married a local Brazilian, and they had a son and daughter. Until he retired, Haralds worked at the “Mercedes-Benz” vehicle factory in Sao Paulo.  Haralds still enjoys reading Latvian books – especially those which are about events and life in Latvia.  On entering Haralds’ home, one immediately notices the works of African art on the walls, which he purchased 60 years ago on his journey with the Biscaya.
