Where I stayed
Janis' House

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

We arrived in to Riga and were greeted by our Couchsurfing host Janis, who took us straight to the beach for a game of football with a couple of his pals. Never would have imagined Latvia had nice beaches, but they are so nice that the area is flooded with Russians in the summer who have built grotesque footballer style mansions along the coast.

We got on really well with Janis and he convinced us to stay a third night so he could take us for a Friday night out in Riga.

The old town of Riga is the same deal as Tallin's, very old, very pretty and very nice to spend a couple of days wandering round.

On Friday we were introduced to all of Janis' friends and the joys of Latvian rap music...

Janis' friends arrived at about 11 and then we headed to one of Riga's clubs at about 3 then Charlie and I were first to flake at 5.30.

The bus to Vilnius in Lithuania was only 4 hours but it seemed a lot longer after drinking so much the night before.
