... br> We pulled into the central bus station in Riga at around 2pm, and I grabbed my bags and walked over to my hostel, a few minutes away in the Old Town. The hostel was much bigger than the one in Vilnius, but seemed friendly enough and had funky decor. At any rate, I was only staying for one night, so it didn't matter much. I was greeted at reception with a shot of Riga Black Balsam, the local liqueur. It's sort of sickly-sweet and very strong, not altogether pleasant, but ...

... along. We caught a bus to our hotel and settled in and then headed back towards the bus terminal to the markets. Riga hosts the second largest markets in Europe (only behind Rungies in Paris) and they've been going since 1201. There was so much to see, clothes stalls, fruit and veg, meat pavilions (with an abundance of tongues, brains and liver to go with the expected meat and sausage), fish pavilions (fresh, dried and smoked fish galore), and pastry goods like no tomorrow.
