Hm, a day out in Rīga. The center is a maze of right-angled streets, lined with massive stone houses and tiny wooden ones. All of them beautiful.
There is waaay too much motorized traffic here. However, the number of cyclists has steadily increased since Minsk (which is not difficult).
The old town is the usual pretty tourist trap.
Surveillance cameras are ubiquitous.
As usual I tried to find some nice spots in the suburbs and was lured along the river Daugava towards the port and industrial areas. Also as usual, it is difficult to get anywhere near the interesting bits. There are lots of decaying buildings there and all over the city.
It is still around 0°C.
The bouldering options didn’t appeal. Is it time to set up a proper bouldering gym in Riga?
