Just arrived in Riga, Latvia. Thought, hey, this hotel is teh cute!

Anya is like, "This hotel is familiar."

I realize that this is of interest to probably no one else reading this (sadly it would be if I were cross posting to LJ, where there is a teeny community for such things), but I'm staying in the hotel where they shot Seventeen Moments of Spring (as well as parts of the Soviet Sherlock Holmes.) And if you think I'm not geeking out like mad over this, you don't know me at all.

Fortunately, Anya is the person who introduced me to the series so she is also geeking out and is equally pleased that Stirlitz is watching over the beds in our room, judging whether or not we have adequately sacrificed and fought for the cause of anti-fascism:

Here's the view out the window:

(If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here is my screenshot recap of Seventeen Moments after I watched it and decided that everyone needed to see it. Minus the image hosting, unfortunately; I'll need to fix that at some point.)

Woohoo, that's so cool about the filming location.

That bed is too lovely for a hotel, wow. But lol to the two beds pushed together. I guess what they say about American mattresses being larger than others is true?

Glad you're safe and having fun!

I'd never heard of this show before and it sounds awesome! Less awesome is the possibility that it was responsible for Putin O.o

I need to find it and watch it.

Also, that hotel is indeed super cute and the sort of hotel I tend to love. I hope you have a great time in Latvia!
