“What is your favorite city?”
I am frequently asked this question and like other travelers, I am tempted to answer, “My favorite city is the city where I am now!”
Of course that is an unsatisfactory answer, even when it might be true.
At the moment I am in Riga, the capital of Latvia. And if I were to give an honest answer, it would be this: “If I make a list of my ten favorite cities, Riga would be on the list, perhaps even in the top five.”
