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.

They had a lady performing silly songs for fun so we danced and sang along with everyone else although since we don't speak Latvian, we had no idea what we were ...
... take a walk and have another look for the wooden houses over the other side of the river Daugava. Again we drew a blank, at least for photogenic ones. We did see some houses that would fit in well in Louisiana, if they were set back from the busy main road in their own grounds and weren’t quite so run down.
