Would have got 5 stars from us except we got the last room which was smoking and we are not. The hotel is right in the center of UNESCO old town, great music unless you are a light sleeper. Staff were great.

The stork is the national bird of Lithuania, and there are more here (13, 500 pair of nesting storks) than anywhere except for Strassbourg, FR. Close by, we catch a quick glimpse of the bust of Frank Zappa, ...
... rate I found confusing as it differed so much from Russia, while I got about 33 Rubbles for one Euro, here I was only getting 0.7 of a Lat for every Euro, it required a whole different mindset when judging exactly how much you were spending trying to appreciate the actual cost in something universal like Euro’s, which I was basing my budget on.
Meeting back up with Sara and the rest of the group we walked into ...
... or five hours to kill in Riga between our bus from Vilnius and the bus from Riga to Tallinn. It was rainy but we found an outside cafe with an awning so camped there for a while. Well, like three hours. We basically ate twice. I had an appetizer of Hunter sausages and potatoes which were basically seasoned wedge fries that Max ate before I could. For entrees, I had a shepherd's pie (this was a British restaurant) and Max had a rib-eye steak and fries. ...
