... coffee & cake back in the Old Town, got talking to the young guy serving and we were off to view the bust of Frank Zappa (Mothers of Invention, ca 1970's). Apparently he has no connection with Lithuania at all, someone just liked the idea of honouring him! Laimonas drove us around parts of Vilnius to take in the views & we had dinner riverside at an old water mill. Another shorter walking tour and it was off to bed for a long, sound ...

They are one of the few places in the world with a Tibet Square and told the Chinese to stuff it when they protested against.
