The Road to Riga

Just as I am beginning to master the lita ($0.38), I am going to have to learn to handle the lat ($1.8). We board the bus and leave our hotel for Latvia promptly at 8:15. On our way out of town we pass a large pink sculpture of a stork egg. 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, ...

Diving In

... I think it was a good thing in the end as it allowed me to sleep more than I ever have on a long haul flight. Landed in Copenhagen. Didn't get to see the city as planned.

The night I landed was spent on a tour of the outer parts of Riga by car with one cousin (Ingvars) who dropped me off at the ...

Back at the top, we were able to watch the luge team practicing. It was scary just watching them, so we ...

... arrive in Riga at around 4:30PM - it is a bigger town than Tallinn, and has a bigger traffic jam. The first impression is that this is not a town than has wasted a lot of money on unnecessary renovations. One gets the impression that they are not hugely reliant on the tourist dollar to support their economy.

This impression is further reinforced when we go out to a group dinner. Despite the size of the restaurant, organising seating for 24 people ...

Summer Solstice in Riga

... the empire was lost, but the people who don't live in Russia seem to cherish their freedom and appear to have prospered. Many suffered under Soviet occupation and about 1/3 of pre WWII Latvians were no longer in Latvia after the war. Many were sent to Gulags under Stalin.

They had a good exhibit on the holocaust, with only about 1,000 Latvian Jews out of over 70,000 survived the war. Today there are 10,000 Jews living in Latvia although I was ...
