We set off early on Friday to arrive in Riga and do some exploring, since the weather was forecast to be overcast on the Saturday (and indeed that is what it has been). Riga was very busy and the added heat made our usual tactic of looking for a wild camping spot a little more stressful. When we saw a Swiss registered motor home that had been clamped (on later inspection they hadn't even bothered to buy a ticket, so there goes Swiss impunity from prosecution!) we ended up at Riga City Camping for an eye watering £17 without electric - our most expensive overnight so far especially given that 95% of them have been free.
The Old Town of Riga was very small but pleasant and once we got hold of a decent map we began to navigate around all of the various sites. It was very difficult to photograph as there were few open spaces from which to get the buildings into frame (oh for a wide angle lens!). We managed to see pretty much everything we wanted to in an afternoon and for whatever reason the city didn't seem to invite us in for a second days touring as we have done with all the capitals so far on this tour, although I suspect the searing heat might have had something to do with it.
