Life’s easy here in Lithuania - you’re having a party and someone broke the door lock of the bathroom door and a person is inside the room at the same time. That happens (it was not me, neither the person inside the room than the person who broke the door lock if some of you are wondering ). Of course you have to break the door to liberate the inprisoned guy which takes more than one hour of jumping and kicking against that door. And of course that makes some noise and the neighbours call the police. But when they come it’s not a problem. You just ignore them and don’t open the door and they will go away after they lightened with flashlights into the windows. That’s what I learned on friday evening.
What else for this weekend? The company I had was great, thanks to Liepa, Jore and Donatas for their hospitality and the cool time I spent with them and their friends. Liepa even helped me to find a new jacket because my usual jacket is my first lost during the trip (but there will come more for sure as I know me). Always be optimistic, so I hope that my hitchhiking chances increase now because the new jacket is an old jacket from the Pizza delivery company “Domino’s Pizza”. So I look like a Pizza delivery guy when I hitchhike. People like Pizza, so I guess they will stop (or they will feel sorry because this pizza delivery guy has to hitchhike to the clients because somehow his scooter disappeared).
In supermarkets here they have live fish displayed in small aquariums for people to choose to butcher. They can decide whether they want a selling person to slaughter it or just they just carry it home in plastic bag without water. That’s how speciesist Lithuania looks like .
Recommendations for a nice pub evening out get the pubs “Alaus namai” with a huge selection of draft beers from all over the world and from a lot of villages and towns in Lithuania with a half liter price of just 4,50Litas (=1,30€). The other place is the “Play Club” where you can mess with the best table soccer players in town or simply play another cardboard game… very cool thing!
The weekend at all was really nice and ended today, after I had to escape from bus conductors (2Litas a ride is just much to expensive) with two really nice Jim Jarmusch movies (”Stranger Than Paradise” and “A Night On Earth”).
