VILNIUS 1


Arriving late into the airport and scooped up by taxi
Through dark streets with yellow sodium half-light
John Le Carré country.

Next day to work.

This city is exciting mix of classic baroque, turn of the century Empire and Soviet concrete.

Everyone looks so young and full of purpose


Three excellent days
A restaurant in the old part of the city, Zemaiciai,
We enjoy the feast
“Only Lithuanian, truly plenty. Rich table. Pieces of pig leg, lightly smoked pig's ears, homemade sausages, baked flank”

Local beer most pleasing
