Not just another old town

For some reason I really like Riga. It has a cool old town which doesn't feel too touristy, even though it has a lot of tourists in it. It has a nice canal with pretty gardens and a big river. I wandered and took a peaceful canal boat ride and lounged in the cozy teahouses. There was a big international choir festival in town. So there was a big parade of nations and groups practising under trees in the park. So many groups from China! I'm telling you, those people are going for ...

... was due to leave. At 11:03, in Munich, we are still sitting there. People are streaming past our cabin in droves. We look out the windows and people are running for our train. We can't figure out what is happening. Four people pile into our cabin with us. The conductor comes by and makes them leave. They only had second class tickets. 11:10 and we are still sitting on the tracks with people still streaming by us. Another 4 people into our cabin and ...
