Next on the trip northward was Latvia. Its capital city is Riga. The country itself seemed somewhat poorer than Lithuania, though Riga is probably the biggest city of the Baltic countries and quite expensive. It is proud of its preserved turn of the century Art Nouveau architecture, interspersed with old clapboard wooden buildings and modern block work.

|This had rye in it, a bread pudding of sorts.|
|One of their old wooden buildings.|
Maybe tomorrow will have some art.
