Still in Skoudas

At the moment, we are visiting family around Skoudas. I am very touched by how excited they are to meet us and welcome us to their homes. It is good to see that the lives of all the families have improved significantly since our last visit, but I did not realise how bad Lithuania was hit during the GFC. With the assistance of European Union money, things are ...

Walking off the family hospitality

... see for miles in all directions - or I should say kilometres! I really did not realise from our last visit in winter that Skoudas had a large lake in the town. In this very hot weather (for them!) of 29 degrees, families are at the lake, swimming and fishing. Of course, it is the long school holidays, so it is much more relaxed.

The organizers get a little minus for the parking facilities, which were non-existent ("just park your can in some residential street.. hope that the residents don't mind"). Oh, and the fact that the coffee vendor in our "Tent City" packed up before we had gotten our Sunday coffee!

Should we go again next year then?

I don't know. Wait if I like Laba Daba better...

Karosta Prison

... many paintings on the outside too. From there we walked to the bridge over the canal which is a split bridge, but the two halves swivel in different directions! This was interesting to see although sadly it wasn't being opened at the time. Following the canal back towards the main town we cut in to Karosta Prison. This was built by the Russians as the second building of a hospital originally however it soon became clear that they also needed a military prison after ...
