Settling In...

We have discovered that our hosts here in Siauliai are wonderfully generous people who have done everything possible to make us feel welcome.  Here are some photos of our apartment, unit 6, at 225 Vilniaus Street, which is situated in the pedestrian-only district in the city center.  We're on the 4th floor, directly above the Swedbank with the yellow façade in the attached set of photos.  There's no lift, alas, but our one-bedroom apartment has all modern appliances.  The bottom photo shows the group of Siauliai University faculty members and graduate students who entertained us at a local restaurant on Saturday night.   


  1. Potatoes, carrots, beets, cabbage washed down with beer. There is a Thai place in town that we haven't tried yet. Lots of pizza. And a farmers market within easy walking distance where they let you sample the wares (lots of pork, herring, smelts). No complaints.
