Days 58 and 59

Riga

sunny 5 °C

We left Liepaja in the morning after a good breakfast and it was very cold outside so we wrapped up warm. Halfway to Riga we found a really nice spot for lunch and took it easy there for a good two hours to ensure we arrived in Riga when our host Igor had finished work.

Igor guided us to his parent's aparment (Alex and Jana) where we showered before heading out onto the town. Riga was very quiet, but we found a lively bar and sat down for a beer. A couple of Russian girls on another table bought us some nasty shots and that set us off down a road which ended a few hours later with Ed and the bouncer carrying me out to a cab home! Alex and Jana were very understanding and helpful and let us sleep it off today (day 59). We didn't emerge from our room until 16:30 . . .

Igor phoned and asked why we'd moved our bikes from the car park last night and got us extremely panicky as we hadn't moved them at all. We got ready to head over to the car park before he called back and said April Fool!

When we could brave the outdoors we went out for some food with Igor and his wife Lena at a great place with huge halls of food and a band playing. After that they dropped us off at a spa where we spent a couple of hours moving between jacuzzis, steam rooms, saunas and pools and emerged thoroughly relaxed and ready for bed again!

Perhaps this photo will make up for the April Fool - Igor in his more embarrasing long-haired days!
