Not exactly a prime tourist destination this time of year, but looks like I'm headed to Riga for an 'extended stay' deal for work. Far from my adventures in the warmer climes of Spain. Has anyone ever been there recently? From what little I have gathered from some other folks I know it isn't too bad and has come a long way since the break-up of the old Soviet Empire. Any pointers welcome..and yes, I am packing a few pairs of wooly underwear for the trip.
