... my visit to Vilnius to an end. I have really enjoyed my stay here and have found the old city to be one of the nicest i have visited. Its very clean and quiet. It isnt overcrowded with tourists, so its a pleasant place to walk. The food here has been brilliant, and cheap. This i will miss. Tomorrow i a have to get up early and be on the 8am bus to Warsaw. I am looking forward to visiting this city.

To the town hall square, looking for camera angles. The heat is just starting to build up. The weather might be unsettled today so poncho in the daypack.
