Housework or art? It depends on the day, but with people arriving tomorrow, first things first.
So here is more of the Baltics. This is a continuation of pictures of Riga, the capital of Latvia.
|A Government building on the main square|
|Across the square is this older building, from the merchant days. (The light was intense.)|
|As in so much of Europe the churches are sometimes little used for worship....|
|.... so this one was a museum.|
|Here were jolly fellows who offered to chop off your head for picture takers.|
|This lady was nicer and sold you medieval jewellery.|
|If you needed to defend yourself from head loppers, this lady could assist you.|
|This quartet is far from Bremen but evidently came to see the sights, and they disapprove.|
|And the soup seems to be ready.|
|This duo was playing Chopin, not on a piano.|
|An inn in an old wall|
|This is the lower part of a freedom monument.....|
|.... overseen by Lady Victory.....|
|....and very still guards.....|
|......and a guard of the guards (maybe so they don't smile when people go up to stand by them for pictures, or maybe so no one tries to pinch their cheeks).|
|They could defend themselves, and Lady Victory.|
|Next up: a castle visit.|
Have a good day.
