Died and gone to heaven? Riga and the Go Blonde Festival   1 comment

Last night we wild camped in the woods in Lithuania. I’m now wondering if during the night we were shot by bandits and are in some limbo world. Today we arrived in Riga, the capital of Latvia. They have an annual festival called Go Blond. Which unsurprisingly is all about blonds. We had a Marilyn Monroe look alike competition, loads of blond singers with amazing lungs (yes I said lungs), a blonde fashion show and plenty of Eurovision music. The folks walking about were all dressed from 1989 in rolled up 501 jeans and converse (just like I wore in the 6th form).  All told there was that much cheese there that I was regreting the fact I’d forgot the Ritz!

Updated on 27th June with sightseeing & Go Blonde photos.
