Day ”off”

I had a day ”off.” Arno and I did the Lonely Planet walk. It started at the cathedral. It is a nice white church. You could hear classical music. The Royal Palace was our next stop. There is a museum in this building. A lot of archaeological artefacts. I really liked the traditional clothing. Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to take pictures. They also showed a movie about crosses. It was interesting because tomorrow we are going to visit  the Hill of Crosses. Especially the ones who are made from cast iron with pagan marks are beautiful. We found a store where a woman was decorating eggs. Aukso Avis is a really good shop if you want to buy some jewelry. We walked pass the National Philharmonic, Basilian Gates, Orthodox Church of the Holy Spirit, St. Theresa’s Church, Gates of Dawn.

 

We took our lunch behind the Contempory Art Centre.

Lots of art inside. It was like a maze to find the toilets. It was hard to find the Jewish quarter. There was a ceremony at the house of the government. Time flies when you’re having fun. It was almost 6 p.m.. I was afraid that I was to late to see the chocolate shop: Tikras šokoladas. I ran… But they closed at 8 p.m.. I bought a small box of chocolates.

 

We decided to eat at Bistro ‘8. This is ‘our pick’ in the LP. I took a red wine. Spagetti with steak. The best for last: the dessert of the day was an heavenly chocolate mousse. It was delicious. “The night was young” (a Dutch saying). We walked to the main square and had some beers. I think my liver has hard time because of all the alcohol J
