Back to the motherland to do a bit of tracing the roots. Riga was fabulous. Super pretty, not too busy, lots of streets of shops and food to explore and ooooooh summer food, all straight from the farm and forest. Turns out that our family Christmas food is all just fairly regular Latvian food, so everything tasted like Christmas. In the middle of summer. Cool. Totally loved RESTAURANT 3 beautiful food, beautiful decor. Almost as good as eating out way through the public market!
Plenty of Latvian hipsters and Russian weirdness for amusement. If ever one has the opportunity to view soviet era taxidermy, one must take that opportunity. Be thankful there’s no photos of the dog merged to another dog medical experiment in here.
