Amazing photos of Riga, Latvia, the former Soviet Union, just being uploaded now! These tourists have chosen January to visit Riga, which is at its coldest right now. They literally have the whole city to themselves! I love to travel this way myself. For example — never visit India during Divali – it is AWFUL! Go only during Monsoon, when the air is hot, thick and sweet and the tourists are scared of the place. Rule #1 – no whining about how cold or hot it is; only speak up if you are in trouble (overheated, frostbit). And this couple does it right — they go and have some thick Borscht with a gigantic pint and are right and ready for to take in some historic buildings — all of them open to the public — with no pesky tourists ruining your shot, and shop the marketplace. I bet the place is a bargain right now, too! Anyway. beautiful city, beautiful pics.
