Vilnius to Riga by Bus  took approx 4 hrs.  So far it seems like a great city.  We've seen three men sitting on top of the river with a hole through the ice doing a spot of fishing!  All the rivers are frozen which is something I'm sure we'll see a lot more of.

Riga's a great place to walk around.  There's lots to see and some interesting museums.  Another harrowing one, but worthwhile seeing is the genocide museum. 

To cheer us up afterwards there were lots of nice bars and pubs.  Not many people around though as it's the wrong time of year.  Unfortunately, however, there was a group of rowdy drunken brits to ruin the peace and quiet.  So we avoided them and went home!

Our hostel is a massive improvement on the last place, just a shame we didn't have the two nights here instead!  It's now a toasty -4 almost warm enough to forget about the thermals!  We're enjoying the warmth before headig for St Petersburg tomorrow!
