Chris and I travelled for 3 hours each way yesterday to Liepaja to sleep the night in an ex-soviet prison. We were the only two people in this place where from 1905 until 1997 people were interogated by the KGB. Pretty scary place. Sleeping on wooden beds as the prisoners did in a cold, dusty, dark jail cell was an experience compared with the norm hostel and beers situation. Unfortunately there was not an opportunity to pay for Russian guards to interogate us and beat the crap out of us all night - which we would have happily parted with a few dollars for.
Today has been as brilliant as the bungy, which was one of the stand out moments of the trip. Yesterday we had difficulty arranging our skydiving in Latvia, from the old Riga airport
Just to let you all know this is what my mum thinks of the whole deal...
Your email scares me, for all the following reasons:-
- You were always taught NOT TO PLAY WITH GUNS
- Why do you have to Bungy Jump & Sky Dive, think of your poor mother
- Whats this about a Russian Jail
KEEP SAFE - NO MORE GUNS, BUNGY JUMPS 0R SKY DIVE & ALWAYS REMEMBER AUSSIE BEST
PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE.
