Being an eternal tourist is actually hard work. It wears you out not to have a real home base equipped with the essentials needed for washing, cooking, etc. Quite frankly, we are all sick of it. The children had no real interest in doing ANYTHING today, so I made us all get OUT and just see what we could see.
Right now, Riga is in the midst of it's "Riga 810" festival, which is some festival celebrating it's 810th year. The children were not really impressed. But I snapped a few amusing shots of Riga that you might enjoy.
