Today was an early start and then 10 hours on the train. The time went faster after I met a couple who were full of good advice about visiting their hometown, Riga.
It was raining when we got here. After helping me get some local money, they got me to a nice place to stay.
It was like meeting angels. I thanked them by saying “ah-chu” which is “thank you” even though it sounds more like a sneeze.
I was directed to a local place to eat where a live rooster meets you in the lobby. I guess the food is something to crow about.
Someone asked me how I could afford to travel around the world. I’ve been saving money for six months and just spending less each day while planning my trip. I found a flight from New York to London for only $250. I’m spending about $50 a day and traveling by train or bus. I am staying in hostels for about $20 a night. It’s just a clean room with a bed. 🙂
Well, others want to use the only computer in the lobby.
