... home of the president of Latvia [as his digs are being renovated]. It dates from 1334, built for the city's guilds. Off to one side is the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia 1940-1991. It got a good recommendation from Donna.

The tour ended and everyone literally went their separate ways. I headed to the Lutheran St Peter's Church [7] for the views over the old town and the surrounding area. The vistas were splendid, once you got there as it was ...

The Scary House on the Corner

... was extremely dreary and decaying on the inside, perhaps a stark metaphor for the fall of the Soviet regime. The locals aren't too sure what to do with this building as no developer wants to buy it, as the expense to upgrade it will be phenomenal, not to mention the constant reminder of its inglorious past. As this year Riga is the cultural city of Europe, they had a museum and open house within the walls of this ignoble building but who knows where it will be in ...

... like a Russian. Although Stuart has learnt a good trick towards anyone that hands him a flyer or brochure for something he just says 'niet!' In a strong Russian accent and they leave him alone (Niet means no in Russian). Apart from spending $75aud to get our clothes washed at a dry cleaners (we were told it was a laundromat, and by the time we worked it out it was too late) we had a really good day.

Midsummer Day

Today, the Latvians celebrate the Midsummer Night Festival for the longest day off the year. The sun rose around 4.10am, and wouldnt set until nearly 11pm. What a day for it too; Crisp clear blue skies and a pleasant 28C day. Thankfully throughout the day, I got progressively healthier and stronger as my sickness faded. Sone rest, medication overkill, sunshine, exercise and magic water just about have me on the road to recovery. More on that latter antidote later. In store for ...
