Best of luck,
It was a short stroll to the impressive market halls.
Agnes showed us round them all and pointed out things that we would never have noticed on our own.
From the fresh fruit and veg, to the dairy products, meat market and the fish market.
All the local specialities were pointed out and explained to us.
We then had a small beer tasting with locally brewed beers. It was so good we had to buy some more to drink. The ginger and mint beer was very tasty.
Then it was over to the Creative Quarter to a small cafe where some local delicacies were waiting for us to try - a rye bread drink, some pastries, various types of sausage, some pickles, and a special type of butter. Just enough to give us a taste of Latvia.
Agnes was a brilliant guide. She didn't mind answering all our questions and we enjoyed listening to her describing life in Riga.
After we sadly said goodbye to Agnes we headed back into the market, armed with all our knowledge, to make some purchases.
The tour is highly recommended. A big Thank You to Agnes our brilliant tour guide - Paldies !!
James was a fabulous guide and we thank him for his knowledge and his enthusiasm
it all made the tour so much more interesting.
I do not think the tour was quite what I expected? I think this may be because we
had visited places before (Auschwitz in Poland) as an example, so we had a pre conception which of course
was wrong. However we thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour and seeing how very different
the buildings are and the area, also the wonderful commentary from James.
