There was no place for a picture, but Johanna did ask the driver to stop so that I could take a photo of the sign for the Pasvalio region. When we stopped for coffee a few miles ...
... beautiful strawberries I have ever seen. Just got nearly dive bombed by a beady eyed little pigeon. Yes, I flinched. I did not however scream like a little girl. Further proof that birds are evil. Evil! We are trying to enjoy a leisurely Sunday afternoon.
