A trip to Lithuania

A Lithuanian blogger (Ežiukas Vilniuje--blogas kuris myli Vilnių) (Hedgehog in Vilnius--the blog that loves Vilnius) recently posted a set of clips from a program about travel in Lithuania that appeared on the Travel Channel. You can watch the episode (three clips) on his website here. If you'd rather watch the entire episode in one clip, you can find that here or here.

Contact me when you arrive and I'll treat you to a beverage of your choice. But beware the liqueur sampler! (See clip.)

A real tragedy. Heartfelt condolences to all Polish people.
