Got a good night's sleep but woke up earlier than I thought because there is no blind or curtains in this room (I later spotted the blinds in the bathroom for some reason). Got ready and headed out for breakfast at Biskvits, a little cafe near the train station. Ordered an omelet and got back an enormous thing more like a frittata with tomato and capsicum.

As a gift to the family, we bought a guitar, which Maurice will also be able to use when he visits Riga. We hope that one of ...
... for Turaida which is a 3 km walk from the station but is a nice regional town. Turaida is an old castle and fortification across a deep river gorge and on a hill above Sigulda. Construction of the stone castle began in 1214 but did not reach its full size until the 16th century after it was conquered by the Swedes. It all came down in about 1776 when all the wooden structures were destroyed by fire. It was not rebuilt until restoration works in the late 20th century ...
