Crash!

The bus driver missed his turn on the way back to Riga, so he slammed on the brakes and then tried to turn. However, he was turning to the outside of a car in the opposite lane. The car started to back up, but not before the bus slid up against it, making a nice 15 foot scrape on the side of the bus. It was one of the worst displays of driving I've seen in a while. Luckily, the two hour delay didn't cause us to miss our flight, as we're here at the Riga airport with time to spare. We fly to Berlin, stay the night, and then fly back to JFK tomorrow and put an end to a rewarding, tiring, frustrating, fun, all of the above 18 day whirlwind trip through Europe.
