I also toured Cēsis, where they have a Castle, an art museum, and cappuccinos that rival anything I had in Italy. Below are some pictures from that:
|The castle... and me under a bridge.|
|Good old Lenin... lost his place in the town square in 1991 and is now in a huge box behind the castle.|
|Looking down an alley in downtown Cēsis.|
|Some fried pike that I ate at this delightful little traditional Latvian restaurant in the middle of one of their national forest areas.|
This morning we said goodbye to Limbaži and headed for Riga. We spent the afternoon touring the historic part of the city, which was beautiful, and reminded me a lot of Austria. The train into the city was interesting as I had a drunk Latvian man fall asleep in my lap. Yes, you read that right, but I'm far to tired right now to go into details... so you'll have to ask me later.
