Fish: smoked, salted-- only fish, no- fisherman points at self-- oh of course, I don't want to make you local color, some folk attraction, your fish is just beautiful, peels from skin and from bone smokey, oily. In a plastic bag on a six hour bus trip next to an Utenos "Basketball Celebration" beer. Eaten at a rest stop on cement stairs, scrape scales from nails, wash hands in beer. Return to bus and try not to touch anything with oily fish beer hands. Smile at person in seat next to me, sip on beer when driver isn't looking.

Lithuania: B

Bridges: Padlocks of love: Marriage in the city: Engraved with names and dates: locked to bridges: especially the bridge to Uzipis: the independent republic of artists within Vilnius.

Lithuania: A

Alcohol: Alaus: Beer: Lithuanian: German: Very good, easy to drink, but not the cloudy amber one with a lemon. Lithuanian vodka: smooth, yes, oh yes, more. Mead: sweet, strong, with cloves with richness. Wine? Not from Lithuania, not very good at all. This night pictured: Utenos then vodka, and vodka with lemon in princess cups. Wolves and beggars.
