Woke up this morning in Latvia. This is a truly amazing itinerary, so many new places. We pulled into Riga in the mid-morning and docked right at the side of the road. It was as if we drove right up to the old town and parallel parked in a prime parking spot. Our plans for today, as with most of the rest of the ports, is to wander, explore, and just enjoy the unique 'sense' of the place.

... massive wife and his eight monsters.

We stayed in the part of the city centre that had all the Art Nouveau buildings. This is an architecture that came about at the turn of the 20th century and it's simply resplendent.

Tales from Old Riga

... the traders who came to Riga. Most of them are under restoration as they are gentrifying the area and turning the old storage sheds into new restaurants and shops and art stores and such.

The city has absolutely marvelous art nouveau buildings. They are so fun and beautiful to look at the facades. Some had angel faces, demon faces, dragons, ...
