... followed them. Slowly but surely we started hearing the "duff duff" of heavy bass in the distance, a sure sign of a dance club nearby. From there we followed our ears. We ended up at a place called "the Fashion Club", and boy, was it fashionable. We paid the equivalent of one Ukrainian peasant family's income for a year just to get in, and realised why.

Just as we were leaving one of them called out, "have safe travel home" in Ukrainian.
We also saw the ...

Hill of crosses
On my route down through Lithuania i happened to be passing one of the premier tourist attractions, the hill of crosses. I am not at all religious, and generally not a fan of really touristy attractions but was told it was worth seeing so decided i would stop anyway. The weather was miserable, there was ...
