Why didnít Lonely Planet think of it first?


The Riga City Councilís Security and Order Committee is supporting a company called Safety Travel in its plan to make a map of Riga which points out Rigaís most crime-prone areas. Apparently, the first draft of the proposed map has already been prepared. The map is supposed to help tourists avoid hooliganism, pick pocketing, car theft, muggings, fraud, and, we presume, the 1,100 Ä bottle of champagne.
