Riga, January 2011: 3rd post out of 20.
One of the things I love about old places is their alleys. Not so narrow in Riga though, or maybe I haven't discovered them since I didn't really explore the place.
On the second picture you see how close it is between the old and the new. Maybe this is what worries UNESCO. I mean, it all looks tidy now, but when the new building was being constructed, surely it affected the old one?
The third and fourth are pictures of one of those lovely holes through the thick wall or building. I just love this one and actually lingered quite a while there admiring the brick patterns.
