guards infront of the castle
Today is going to be my first venture into the city all by myself. we drove trough on saturday, before the car broke down, and i have a good map, but I really don't know anything else.
I know which bus to take from here, and which to take back again, but of course I forgot to have my friend show me on the map where the bus leaves from in the city... :p

But I'm sure that'ļl work out :) I'll just hope it leaves from where it drops me off...

Right now I'm enjoying a long, slow morning, I have coffee and the computer, and I'm going to make myself a ryebread sandwich with cheese salad now. Ryebread is a strange thing, I've never really been a big fan, but this one is better than the ones I've eaten in other countries, and I find myself wanting ryebread, even though the first taste is always a little strange. I guess it's an aquired taste, like so much else, but i fear that this bread will be something that I'll remember, and want, months after i go home... lol :)

i'm also having a lot of fun with my latvian phrasebook. I haven't really learned much yet, bu me trying to put sentences together, and reading out loud from the phrasebook, has he latvians falling over themselves in laughter. There are so many trange, useless sentences in that book! But I still haven't found the numbers... since that appearantly is not something you need to know?

But at least I've learned how to say smoking kills...
