I had no idea what to expect of Latvian food before my trip to Riga. Research dictated that dishes typically consisted of meat (especially pork), potatoes, fish and rye bread.
Clusters of terracotta rooftops wading through the city, peering medieval church spires, gothic towers, and vehicles crawling at a distance made it feel as if we were prying over a closely knit community going about its slow life. Stretched across river Vltava, Charles Bridge connects Prague's Old Town to the 'Lesser Town' (Malá Strana).
