Empty Suitcases

Three weeks later than I expected, I finally moved into my room in Kaunas.  I think it was worth the wait.  The new windows are quite fancy and, most importantly, are triple-paned so they should keep the room warm during the winter.  Furnished apartments often seem to have the owners’ cast-off furniture, bedding and kitchen supplies.  This landlady bought new bedding, towels, a sofa bed and desk for the room.  Plus I have my own newly-purchased basic set of dishes and pots in the kitchen.

Best of all, I actually unpacked suitcases last night.  The two largest ones are EMPTY!  The medium-sized suitcase is filled with things to take back to Vilnius next week when I can move into the small apartment I found to rent there.  I’ll be down to only two sets of keys and all empty suitcases in just a few days.
