How is it so difficult to find our hotel in Riga? There's just far too many bends and curves. We consulted 3 separate map apps just to find the place. Perhaps, next time, we will have better luck and find a place that we can drive straight to.

Johanna found us a wonderful speciality restaurant called the Fazende, Nometnu iela 7. in Riga.
