    ... butter arrived, followed by my main. The black pudding was very black, to quote Monty Python, although personally I would have preferred it a little firmer. The pearl barley was like a grainy porridge that complemented the sausage quite well, but the cranberry jam didn't really work for me.

    After a hot day it's turned into a lovely evening once again and both tourists and locals are out in force to enjoy it. Most of the bars and restaurants have good crowds and most of ...

    Saved by the Germans

    ... see we had paid for two rides. But he wasn't having any of it. We were about to give up in despair when the leader of a party of German tourists, who had boarded the tram after us, and bought individual tickets from the driver for each party member, lent over, presented us with a €2 ticket saying 'here us your ticket'! The inspector looked at it, shrugged and went away. Phew! The German party got off at the bus station with us and we ...

All nations and people that were occupied obviously had a very rough time, but ...

    ... Mode bar. I was amazed that there was one of them period, and now to find out there are two? The guy who ran it said this one was pretty new and that he'd been to the one in Tallinn and is hoping this one can live up to that one.

    ... checked out the next morning. For €10 ($15) each a night we weren't expecting much and they didn't disappoint. We wandered around the Old Town of Riga and found this awesome restaurant that had great food, cheap beer and excellent tunes. Steve is in beer heaven. €3 ($4.50) for a half litre of primo Euro beer.

    We were keen for a quiet night just relaxing in a cosy restaurant, but unbeknownst to us, this first weekend in May is ...
