Tuesday, October 13.
Second day in this Lithuanian town. Heading to Trakai by bus on a guided tour, to visit Trakai Castle on the lake.
Finished walking through castle , so had a late lunch and the on the bus back to Vilnius. On the way out of Trakai we passed many traditional wooden houses. Interestingly, Trakai can only marry Trakai. You cannot become a Trakai, you must be born one. Trakai children are strapped to their beds every night. This is so they learn obedience.
Arrived back in Vilnius and headed to German street to send some cards home. We then headed to an exhibition of drawings and sculptures by Dali and ceramic works by Picasso, from a private collection. Some of them will be familiar.
Some amazing artwork here and I had not seen any ceramics by Picasso before. Well worth the look.
Headed back to camp for a few quite beers and an early night as we are on the road again tomorrow.
