The flat, itself, was a renovated loft, decorated with wood and stainless steel. The upstairs rooms were lit with skylights that opened up to view the Vilnius skyline. So cool. The same can be said for the girls. They were sweet, easy to be around and still glowing from a recent couchsurfing experience of their own in Rome.
For our first night together, we found a Czech pub and watched the final Euro-cup game. I know those of you reading have all been in ardent suspense over the outcome, and you'll be happy to know Spain beat Germany, 1-0. That is, of course, unless you're a fan of Germany.
When the girls had to go to work the next day, I set out on my usual roaming path. I had plans to meet Andreanne and Charlotte by one of the churches, to make plans for our upcoming trip to the Baltic coast. (More on this topic to come.) I was late getting there and, unsure of the location, they gave up very quickly. All of this resulting in a failed rendezvous. I sat waiting for awhile, but eventually gave up myself and continued in my wandering.
The girls and I made dinner for my last night in Vilnius. Vikta made fish. Reda handled the potatoes. And I exposed them to the glory of salad with strawberries. All of it topped off with ice cream and good conversation. I've really enjoyed my time in Vilnius and feel like I got a decent understanding of Lithuania and it's people. I also very happily discovered that the rest of the toilets were regular porcelain stools. Hallelujah for that, or it could have been a very long week.
