The first event of the mathematics education conference happens this evening (registration and social mingling with drinks). Today we had a ride on the little wooden boat that sails around the Riga canal. The trip goes through the park and past many interesting buildings. G decided that we would get off on an island some distance from the centre and walk back.
We then wandered through the Old Town, had lunch, wandered off into a suburb and then back past the hotel and then finally wandered to the ferry terminal where the daily ferry sails to Stockholm.
The weather is actually much better than the first two photos make it appear. It is hot!
The Tallink ferry that runs between Stockholm and Riga coming in to dock in Riga.
The day was getting hotter and hotter, so we stopped for a drink in cafe by this small marina. The ferry to Stockholm can just be seen behind the trees.
