Ten shows over three days. Awesome fun. More to ...
... the traditional dish of beet root soup to start and then Ally tried the meat stuffed potato dumpling while Cat ate a dish of potatoes and mushrooms in a cream cheese sauce. Both meals were tasty but again filling; especially after our lunch. Ally tried a local Kaunas beer which was good.
