We arrived safe and sound and got to enjoy hugs from Baiba and meet her two boys Filips and Edvards when she picked us up at the Riga Airport. Then on to Chuck’s apartment and settling into our temporary housing here in Riga. Chuck needed to keep us awake until 9:00 p.m. Riga time, so we took off on a walking tour of old town Riga. What a beautiful city! Chuck is an awesome tour guide and knows the fascinating history of this city well. Then this evening Peter and Baiba treated us to dinner at their house where we got to meet Ruta and their cousin Tom, as well as enjoy Chuck’s company.
What a sweet start to this journey together!
