Hi all

The road to Daugavpils started with a visit to the Riga Central Markets. Originally built for the Zeppelins.

We drove to Rumbula, the forest where 25000 Jews were murdered on 2 days in 1941.

We stopped at an old cemetary in Livanu. There is a project underway to photograph and index all the  stones.

The road to Daugavpils has lots of potholes, trucks and no overtaking lanes! 220km from Riga. Takes about 3.5 hours each way.The Daugav River runs alongside the road and there are interesting sites along the way
