hkskyline's 2008 - RIGA, LATVIA #1

My 2008 Europe trip had quite an interesting twist. A fellow HK forumer suggested a very exotic place to visit ... a place I never thought I'd visit, but ended up being a surprisingly wonderful trip. I descended onto the soils of the former Soviet Union for the first time.

1. Welcome to Riga, Latvia.



2. This bus really reminds me of Eastern Europe.





4. Riga appears to be a wealthy place, with clean streets, manicured lawns, and people enjoying the weekend.









8. Lovely fall colours. We came at the right time ... if only the skies were blue! Yes - I am greedy.









12. More colourful buildings await - just like in the rest of Europe.















19. The paint may not be new, but the street scenes are not run-down at all.



















28. There aren't that many cars roaming the streets of the old town, which made exploring by foot even more fun.















35. A nicely-beautified alley.











40. It was a cool October day ... a bit too cold to enjoy outdoor dining.
