Hangar hangover (Riga)

#throwback to this day last year, at the covered Central market in Riga, a UNESCO world heritage site and also Europe's largest bazaar. The market is made of 5 repurposed zeppelin hangars -- there are only four more in the world -- and was finished in 1930 at the same riverside site where an open produce market has existed since the mid 16th century. We loved it. We browsed through clothes, purses, a meat section, household stuff, flowers, a very meaty food court, cheeses, and much produce. We finally bought cherries and plums, but not much else, eventually finding a bistro in the style of a Polish

We loved walking around Riga and cycling around the tiny, flowery Sigulda with it’s astonishingly good bakery cafe and peach railway station. I don’t know if I’ll be back, but life is long…
