We strolled around the M. Mazvydas Sculpture park. It was a former cemetery and wasn't a perfectly manicured park like others I have been to. But things don't always have to be perfect - it was still very enjoyable because it seemingly had more character and an old-world feel to it.
Mary-ism #17: We came across a sculpture of a woman that appeared to be touching herself in a fairly provocative way
After, we stopped at an internet café to see the results of our joke. Yesterday, we emailed everybody and told them that we got married in Spain. We weren't sure if anybody would believe it, but knew that if they did, this would go down as one of the biggest jokes ever. Anyway, we sent an email with the following link: http://www.imagestation.com/album/pictures.html?id=208778652 9
It turns out that the joke was highly successful, far beyond anything we could have hoped for. All of our planted responses may not even have been necessary. Hopefully everybody doesn't hate us when we get back ... but at least we've given them something to talk about for a long time to come! Of course it's possible that nobody dares to question the marriage - it could be pretty insulting if we were actually married!
We had a good laugh and went off to lunch at "Ferdinanda's", a Russian restaurant (sounds more Spanish than Russian, doesn't it?) that serves traditional food from an old Orthodox sect, using recipes handed down through several generations
After, we went to the Domsaitis Gallery. The art was nothing special, but hey, it was only 1 Euro! It had the worst seats inside - they were nothing more than a piece of leather stretched over a box. It felt like you were sitting on a flaccid drum.
Next was the clock museum - kind of cool but kind of boring. Mary was denied a student discount - she's been using her expired student ID card with great success so far. Back to the B&B.
We had dinner at "Kaimas" - the restaurant looked packed and had very enticing photos of the food. But it was a mistake - the food was not good at all. It's almost the Lithuanian equivalent of the "Montana's" restaurant chain. And that's NOT a compliment! But at least there were several attractive Lithuanian ladies in the building.
Pat and Mary Asian Circus-Sideshow Freak in the Baltics Moment #11: A table of beautiful Lithuanian women immediately stopped eating and talking as soon as we stepped through the door. Their heads turned and followed me as we walked to our table
After dinner, we checked out a local jazz club. I tried a Svyturys dark beer - it looked and tasted similar to the previous one I had, with the exception of a slice of lemon floating in the glass. The waitress was pretty bitchy to us. Don't know what her problem was.
The food looked pretty good here - perhaps we should have eaten dinner here instead! The jazz band was also good. A scary-looking biker gang walked in just before we were about to leave. The jazz club was a good way to end the night.
