    Riga, not like the spy novels

    Riga isn't like all those spy novels I read years ago. It's not dark and bleak, but very light and open, with broad streets. I was very surprised by all the art nouveau buildings. They have even made their TV tower look ok. However they still have lots of wooden buildings just behind the main attractions.

    I've noticed that most of the ex- …

    ... qualm I had was the stench of the tiny urinal - it didn't help that my ten-euro seat was situated right behind it. But, after all, it was only a ten-euro seat for an international journey - I can't really complain.

    I am staying at the Naughty Squirrel backpackers. It is the best hostel I have stayed in for a while - lots of clean bathrooms, free internet - things that I used to take for granted until my swedish experience. In my room is an older dutchman, an indian man in ...

    ... spill back on them no toilet paper were ever given. People were forced to live and eat under this stench, absolute horror. When the Nazis over took the Baltic states from the Soviets, the Latvians were thinking the German were liberators, but instead, the Nazis started their horrific killing spree of the Latvian Jews. After the war, the Soviets returned for another 40+ years from 1944 til 1991. Latvians along with their ...
