RIGA, Latvia — Riga is not for the thin-blooded, but locals manage to maintain their sense of style despite the near-constant chill.
Even spring's arrival is not much of a consolation, considering freezing temperatures are still the norm. Ditto for summer, when the average temperature creeps up to only 63. (So sturdy are they, sauerkraut juice is the preferred hangover cure.) Wherever the mercury rests, Latvians are out on the cobblestone streets or hoofing it to the central market housed in five beyond-drafty zeppelin hangars.
