August 25

Arriving in Riga, with the french we went to John Lemon pub where I was going the previous year with James to have breakfast. Finally most of the afternoon we spent chilling at their hostel, I used the opportunity to wash and use the net for free. Finally, I got a message from Chris with the address and appointment which we reached after having asked the exact location at the tourist office. There I met with Chris (HC:escarabajo) and Gerard (HC:trollgrubbe) his flatmate, both were pretty cool and really enthousiastic german architects working in Riga. Ralph (HC:rarom) and his girlfriend Anda (HC:justbe) where also their guests. So we were going to have a great week-end with lots of nice HC people.

We went back in town to meet and tour the city with the French for the evening and its only later for the dinner hour we had talked about (at 20h) that we went back to Chris, stopping by at the supermarket on the way for food and some things for the dinner (which has only been grapes and ice cream).

Later by night I got in touch with James and I went out by myself to meet him at the backpacker guesthouse bar in town… Chris was finally there too as they missed their tram to go to the movies as they had plan to. I had some nostalgic moment with James talking about Carole and about lots of other things before finally we walked back to sleep, luckily we were walking the same direction for quite a while… which was nice as Riga isn’t always the nicest place to walk by night (even if I do not care about that anymore).
