Lithuania – Apr 17

02/05/2017

Hi from Lithuania! We are in Kaunas, the second city of Lithuania. We have spent the last few days exploring the city streets and parks, as well as the riverside. It’s a beautiful place. The children are happily settled in their host families, and on Sunday they visited the Zoo. They also went trampolining! Yesterday they gave their presentation to the whole group, and did a fantastic job! Today we are all in school working on the project and playing basketball. After lunch we are off to a folk museum outside of the city to make some traditional Lithuanian foods!

Today we visited a wonderful folk museum at Rumsiskas outside of the city. It is located in a huge area of great beauty, where old wooden houses from all around Lithuania have been brought and reassembled. The children also had the opportunity to cook gingerbread, and potato pancakes. Yummy! We walked for hours and looked inside many old houses. The weather was once again beautiful – warm and sunny!

Today we cooked . . . and then we went ice skating! Actually we learned how to make two traditional Lithuanian  dishes. The national dish is Cepelinai , which are meat filled potato dumplings. Very tasty! We also made a delicious cold beetroot soup. We also created a dinner made up of ingredients from all the partner countries. This turned out remarkably well.  Tomorrow we go to  Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, and Trakai, an historic site. Looking forward to seeing  Lithuania ‘s beautiful capital city.

Today we visited a castle in Trakai.  It is located on a beautiful lake and used to be the main fortress of the Kings of Lithuania. We saw the wooden houses of the Karaim people, and enjoyed a lunch of soup and Kibini, little meat or cheese pies. Then we travelled to Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. Such a beautiful city! It has wonderful buildings, grand squares and small cobbled streets, lots of trees and a lovely riverside. The Lithuanian people are obviously very proud of their capital – it is very clean and well kept. We returned to Kaunas  after a great day full of the history and culture of Lithuania.
