On her suggestion we headed for Kernavė. But on our way there we first stopped over in a place going by the name of Sudervė. Sudervė is in fact a village located around fifteen kilometres away from Vilnius. It boasts the church of Holy Trinity and basically once there, you can't possibly miss it. They say that not far away from the village there is an open-air contemporary stone sculpture museum. I don't know whether Ruta and I would've gone on to visit museum if the weather had been different
But we got away without any accidents. We were just being careful and everything went fine. In the quiet of Lithuanian forest, the noisiest thing were our steps crunching dry snow or trodden ice. Even the sound of our voices was muffled. We circled around the church, which, naturally, couldn't be entered on Tuesday afternoon. Also, we walked around the cemetery and Ruta made no secret of her desire to see fewer Polish and more Lithuanian names on gravestones. As everywhere in Lithuania, for that matter. But you just couldn't change history.
In front of the church there was a yard with a coloured statue of Holy Mother. And as far as we were concerned, that was it. As Sudervė went, of course. It was now time to sit back in the car and warm ourselves up a bit.
