... a small [by mistake] Grinbergen Blonde lager and a shot of black balsam. Ate all the fatty parts of the pork but figured will walk it off in the heat of Riga. The beer was 6.7% in intensity, far too strong for you, Travster. Jazz was playing, undoubtedly part of Riga being the continent's cultural capital.

... a bicycle with a wicker basket full of fresh flowers or a baguette. Anyways, I suppose it is also better to slow down the email rate because it is quite difficult to get them all into a shutterfly book if there are too many. We are in Latvia now--country 35 for those of you keeping track. Mostly we have walked and walked and walked some more.
