Riga Region Shopping

  • Armani and, well, pornography really

    The only shop of any value that i saw was the armani boutique, but still it was poor by western standards. Outdated stock and more expensiove than the Kings Road. If your in Latvia, the best thing to get is good pornography, theres mountains of the stuff and its top quality. Latvian girls outnumber men 4 -1 and they aint the richest in Europe....

  • Flea market

    The Flea market is at the back of the train station, and it's listed as a touist attraction, but to be honest, I cant see how it could be? It's really for local housewives and traders, what would we want to buy big chunks of meat and cabbage for? Foodstuffs, second hand clothes.
