The Road to Riga

... just outside of Riga in a beach town called Jurmala. Although the cool, rainy weather did not deter the crowds on the street, it kept us from a planned 'toe-dipping' in the Baltic Sea.

Our tour day finished with a visit to the (in my opinion) unremarkable Riga Opera House and a delightful surprise concert by a member of the company. After admiring the Freedom Monument, we walked to the Grand Palace, our boutique hotel in Riga's Old ...

Diving In

... 100 k/ph with a professional bobsledder. Awesome day to say the least. The bob sled track was an experience in and of itself.

I managed to have a nap for a about two minutes until one of those beeps sounded, and I did one of those spastic hypnotic-jerks. The girls across the aisle got a good laugh out of that. See you soon ...

... walking around. Again lots of market places that we cannot not stop at. We had our meal in the hotel we were staying at both had soup I had a Latvian dish and Diane had a vegetable dish both of us enjoyed the meal I also had 3 x 500mls of beer and Diane had 2 glasses of hot wine which she has come to like. The total cost of this was about $30 not bad considering that at all the market stalls we found that here was about twice the price ...
