Riga in Christmas lights
The first weekend of December we took a Ryanair flight from Belgium airport Charleroi and in two hours we stepped out on the Latvian land. In 15 minutes we arrived to our hotel in the old town, dropped the luggage and hurried outside to discover the city. Christmas markets were installed on all main squares of the city and shop windows were decorated with lights, snowflakes and candles. In combination with cobbled tiny streets and the colourful facades it created a special festive ambiance of the magic town where every dream would come true.

Catch the wind
A house where cats live
Heaven for little ones
I would say this is decoration for the tree. However, I have some doubts. Does anyone know what it is for?
Winter soup should be made on an open fire with no exceptions!

Christmas market at Livu square
Excellent idea to decorate the space and hide the source of light
