Vilnius Again


Stepping outside onto the balcony, low and behold there was a marching band!

The marching band was quite good and was followed by very enthusiastic students of all ages. And that says a lot about Lithuania: if nothing else, they are enthusiastic. From their unabashed expression of style to their propensity for busking and singing in the street, there is an optimism and expressiveness here that I don't notice in the Czech Republic. In the evenings people openly flaunt their happiness as well as their grief.

This is my third trip here, and I'm liking it more and more each time I visit.

  • you lucky dog! Is Lithuania considered a Scandinavian country?

  • No, not really.

    It is a slavic language, "Baltic state".
