... br> Made it out of Riga to a town not too far away called Sigulda as the area supposedly has a number of places of interest around it. Found it, a pretty place with a few castles, sculptures and caves etc. So we did our usual wander but not as striking as most other places we had been.

Included were some huge and somewhat comically "retro" soviet luxury cars, some of which belonged to Stalin and his officials. The highlight was a smashed Rolls of 1980s vintage, which Leonid ...
