Travel Blogs from Riga
... places to live in Latvia, with some house prices on par with major European cities. The neighbourhood had a strange American feel to it. Many of the buildings, even on the main street, made out of wood.
We then caught the train back to Riga and began to cook at the hostel. Little did I know this would be one of the best meals I've made since I left home. Handcut potato wedges served with fried chicken nuggets (Yes, the discount one's we picked up for ...

Of course, had we gone on our own we would have been quivering in fear, but we had a tall skinny Latvian who didn't comb his hair there to protect us.
