we arrived in Vilnius quite late at night, and finding a hostel was harder than expected. the first one in lonely planet was closed down, the second one had no rooms, and the other one was so far out of town we didnt bother checking it out. instead we had a few 2 pizzas and parked the car down a quiet leafy suburban street, which appeared to be full of embassies. about 1am we were woken by the police, flashing their lights and knocking on the door. They were pretty cool though, after finding out we were from the Uk they didnt seem too bothered, but just told us we were parked in a no parking area and to move a few meters down the road. pretty easy. we slept fine after that.
the next morning we were woken up by mothers bringing their kids to the preschool we slept in front of. classy. We drove back into town for some breakfast and wandered around parts of the old town before driving out to Uzupis, a town who proclaim to be their own republic. We thought it would be much like Christiania in Denmark, it was remarkably different. it was quiet and looked like any other part of the city, the only sign of anything unusual, was a bar flying a different flag, and a few commerative plaques on a wall with the constitution on them.
