Small Town Riga

A travel blog entry by caylameinert


... called it a night.

Wednesday morning we had a walking tour of the Old Town, reconfirming exactly how small the city of Riga was. In the matter of 2 hours, we had toured practically all of the Old City, seeing all of the old churches, city halls, and government buildings.
